Designed to help you use up a skein or two of variegated sock yarn, this top-down, drop shouldered pullover only looks like it’s stranded knitting. In reality, you only ever use 1 color on any row, and slip a stitch here and there to make it look like stranded colorwork.

An easy fit (just 1-3” of positive ease) makes it a cinch to fit and style, and with sizes ranging from 33-67” (finished bust)”, anyone with a bust size between 30” to ~65” bust can get a terrific fit. Short rows angle the shoulders downward to minimize underarm bulk and keep the sweater from giving you “wings” at the shoulders.

A photo tutorial is included to guide you through the construction. The slip-stitch pattern is charted only, but it’s super easy one (like “sl1, k5” to the end…), and the MC rows are just 2 rows of plain stockinette--really great for a chart-newbie! I still include a detailed How-To for reading these particular charts, and once you’re a few rows in, the pattern becomes very intuitive.

Materials:
Sizes 33 ½(36 ½, 38 ¾, 42 ½, 45 ¼, 48, 51 ¼, 54 ¾, 57 ¼, 60, 62 ¾, 66 ¾)” require:
2(2, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 3, 4, 4, 4, 4) skeins of the Main Color (MC) in Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply (400yds/110 g, shown in Quicksilver) AND
1(1, 1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2) skeins of the Contrasting Color (CC) in Miss Babs Yummy 2-Ply (400yds/110 g, shown in Zombie Honeymoon), or approximately:
695(735, 805, 870, 940, 1000, 1050, 1105, 1205, 1245, 1290, 1380) yds of the MC, and
270(290, 315, 345, 385, 415, 440, 465, 515, 540, 565, 700) yds of the CC

Because of the short rows and needing to “read” your knitting to work the stitch pattern below the underarms, I’m calling this an intermediate-level pattern.
