Add a splash of retro style to your wardrobe with the Geraldine pullover. Its seamless construction and sweet band of knitting-inspired stranded colorwork make it a cute but easy project. The upper back is knit first, and the fronts are picked up from the cast on edge of the back. The body is joined in the round when the underarm stitches are cast on, and then it’s knit in the round through the ribbing. Set-in sleeves are made seamlessly by picking up stitches around the armhole and working short rows to shape the sleeve caps. Geraldine is the perfect project to work on while curled up on the couch in front of an old movie or while hanging out with friends.
The sweater is intended to be worn with 0-2 inches of negative ease.
