This body of this sweater is knit seamlessly in the round from the bottom up. The front and back are separated at the underarms and worked flat. After joining the shoulders using the three-needle bind-off, sleeve stitches are picked up and knit in the round from the top down.
This sweater features a slight A-line shape achieved by changing needle sizes throughout the body, ensuring that the stitch pattern is not interrupted. Gauge is taken using the largest needle size.
The New Moon Pullover is available as part of e-book Shimmer & Shine, and as an individual pattern through Ravelry.
