Unleash your inner star fleet commander with this one-of-a-kind sweater. This slightly-cropped, drop-shoulder pullover features unique ridges along the sleeves. The body of the sweater is knit bottom-up in the round. The front and back are divided, and a three-needle bind off is used to seam the shoulders. Stitches are picked up around the armhole edges and sleeves are knit top-down. The sleeves are charted and feature a twisted stitch motif. Later, stitches are picked up from both legs of the twisted stitches, knit in the round, and grafted together creating unique, v-shaped welts.
The sleeve patterning is in chart form only. Unless otherwise noted, all slipped stitches in this pattern are worked purlwise with yarn held back.
