Architectural and completely modern in shape, this cropped pullover is a compelling knit and an eye-catching addition to any wardrobe. The front, back, and sleeves are simple quadrangles worked flat and seamed to achieve a wide, swingy shape with an open neckline and snugly fitted three-quarter-length sleeves. The interplay of twisted ribs, cables, and traveling stitches yields a fabric that wants to move and fold, and clever placement of each element creates flattering lines on the body.
Ondawa is knit in Shelter and designed to be oversized or even generously oversized; we chose to style it with almost 19” of ease. Since the size of the boatneck is determined by your seaming, you can adjust the way the garment sits on your shoulders after the knitting is complete. Measure your arm circumference at the biceps to determine which size sleeve will give you a slender fit that’s not too restricting.
