Drawstring Pullover

JENNIFER WOOD

Interesting techniques—cast-ons, short-rows, double knitting, and more—are worked into a simple, cozy sweater. Twisted cords cinch the openings. 

FINISHED SIZE 40 (44, 48, 52, 56)” bust circumference. Pullover shown measures 40”, modeled with 8” of positive ease.

YARN Shibui Knits Staccato (70% superwash merino, 30% silk; 191 yd [175m]/1¾ oz [50 g]): #2023 clay (MC), 8 (9, 9, 10, 11) balls. Shibui Knits Silk Cloud (60% kid mohair, 40% silk; 330 yd [302 m])/7/8 oz [25 g]): #2023 clay (CC), 5 (5, 6, 6, 7) balls.

NEEDLES Body – size 6 (4 mm) two 24” circulars (cir). Cowl – size 8 (5 mm): 16: cir. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

NOTIONS Marker (m); removable m; waste yarn for provisional CO; stitch holders; tapestry needle; small safety pin.

GAUGE 20 sts and 28 rnds = 4” in St st with 1 strand each of MC and CC held tog on smaller needle.

Has anyone made this sweater? I am at the part where it says shape hips, but the directions don't make sense. I have two markers where the side seams would be, but if I follow these directions, I'd need to go around twice to add the 4 stitch increase and it will add it unevenly side to side.  I am wondering if there is an error.
