Beacon Hill is an elegant pullover with a wide boat neckline and gently ballooned sleeves. Trim edgings worked in woven herringbone stitch, with slit hems and smooth sleeve caps, keep this design fresh and wearable. The body is worked back and forth in pieces at the hem and then joined and knit in the round to the armholes; it is then divided once more for front and back. The collar is picked up and worked in herringbone stitch after seaming; the sleeve caps are picked up around the armhole and worked with short rows before continuing to the wrist. As written, the wide boat neck and ballooned sleeves make Beacon Hill an extremely flattering choice for proportional shapes. Top-heavy shapes might consider narrowing and deepening the neckline; Bottom-heavy shapes might consider a more subtle sleeve. Vertical waist darts give the sweater an easily-customized and figure-flattering shape, and are easily extended into bust darts for knitters who desire them. The Woolen Rabbit's Lark yarn is a glorious blend of alpaca, silk, and cashmere with astonishing depth of color. Should you desire to use another yarn, please make sure that it produces a drapey fabric with good body at 7 stitches to the inch.
