An attractive and simple tunic-style garment, the pullover is sized to reach to well below the hips, although you can make it shorter if you wish. The drop shoulder sleeves are full length, but could be omitted altogether for a retro-style drop shoulder tunic. The main body has a rib welt and is then worked in stocking stitch up to the traditional Guernsey-style yoke design, which is also echoed in the sleeves with a line of twisted ribs. An elegant textured, non-Guernsey variation for worsted spun yarns is added for those allergic to cables!
Using 4.5 mm needles achieves a reasonably dense and firm fabric. This unisex sweater comes in 2 sizes and is worked in two main pieces, with the shoulders seamed together and then the sleeves picked up and worked down to the desired length.
