Arm Candy is is a figure-conscious, elbow-sleeve pullover trimmed with seed stitch, knit flat in pieces, and seamed together for structure. Shoulders are shaped using short rows and joined using a three-needle bind-off for a smooth line, and the sleeves are set in. Waist shaping is achieved with vertical darts, and the sleeve cuffs are knit separately to allow for some shaping and sassy button detail. You might find that your gauge in seed stitch differs from your stockinette gauge; if this is the case go down (or up) a needle size for the seed stitch trim. Sundaraʼs Aran Silky Merino is a dream to work with and not nearly as difficult to obtain as it once was. However, Arm Candy will look great in other yarns that knit up nicely at 4.5 sts to the inch/2.5 cm. Technical editing by Elizabeth Sullivan; Photography by Caro Sheridan.
