Justine is a tunic-length hooded sweater knit from the top down. The bodice is knit flat with increases for raglan sleeves and a v-neck, then is joined in the round to knit the body and skirt. Sleeves are short, perfect for layering or stand alone wear. The hood is knit from the neck up, the top seam closed with a kitchener stitch, and then stitches picked up along the edge to knit the ribbing. Patch pockets are added at the end.
