Miss boule

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knitting in the round
  • corrugated ribbing (2 color ribbing)
  • intarsia in the round (explained in full detail in the pattern)

Pattern Description:

Miss boule is a seamless pullover worked from the top down in 1 piece. Starting with shaping the back and shoulders, stitches are picked up for the front and sleeves and are worked following the contiguous sleeve method, developed by Susie Myers.
The boules(tm) are worked as intarsia color blocks in the round. It sounds more difficult than it really is? Detailed descriptions, tips and a lot of illustrations are included in the pattern. The hems and cuffs are worked in corrugated ribbing seperated from the body and sleeves by an estonian braid(tm)

Best worn with negative ease or no ease.
If you should want more ease, it(tm)s best to start with the numbers of the size closest to yours and add more increases for the body and sleeves.

The pattern is split in two sections. The general pattern with the boules presented as charts and an appendix with the boules completely written out.
