Kitschy or subtle, the choice is yours with this festive pullover. Decorate your tree with beads and baubles like a Christmas tree, or leave it plain and natural. This reverse-stockinette pullover is knit seamlessly, beginning with the upper back. The upper front is picked up and knit from the upper back cast-on edge, and the sweater is joined in the round when the underarms are cast on. At the same time, a stockinette tree motif is knit on the front using a combination of increases, decreases, and cables to shape it. Stockinette sleeves are picked up around the armholes, shaped with short rows, and knit to a ¾ length. More stitches are picked up and knit around the neckline, and then the band is folded in half and seamed to form a funnel neck. For the best fit, choose a size with 1-4 in / 3-10 cm of negative ease through the bust.
