Military-Inspired A-Line Pulloverby Bristol Ivy
The saddle shoulder gets a polished, modern treatment to create an effortless pullover for work or play. Crisp garter ridges at the hem and shoulders and a vintage-inspired scoop neck invite button-down pairings but keep casual outfits sweetly feminine, too. The fit is contemporary—an easy silhouette with slim sleeves—and the details knitterly, as short rows shape the curved back hem and the work is done entirely in the round.

*32" circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e. Sleeves)
Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. Please test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
