Three Braids is a seamless pullover knit from the top down with subtle dolman sleeves. The design uses an adaptation of the contiguous method of shaping set-in sleeves developed by Susie Myers. Interesting construction, the subtle dolman sleeves (which can be easily modified) as well as the cabled pannel on the front will keep you motivated until the bottom rib resulting in a modern pullover for everyday use.

I'm a mother, former teacher and a knitwear fanatic. I learned my first stitches from my mom when I was a teenager, but I gave up knitting quickly afterwards. Having my first baby brought back my passion with great impact and this time I also started designing knitwear for children and sometimes for adults. I live with my husband and two kids in Poland.
