Union Square Market Pullover - Kate Gilbert

THIS FLIRTY, YET COMFORTABLE SWEATER will take you from Saturday morning at the market to an afternoon coffee date. The sweater is
knitted in softest alpaca, and the bodice is contoured to gently follow your curves. The body and sleeves are worked in the round, and short
rows are used to shape the belled, slightly medieval sleeves. A pretty contrasting color adds a fresh note at the neck and hem, and highlights
the sleeve points.
