This is a basic pullover that is framed by ribbing at the bottom and at the neck. Stockinette stitch makes up the body. The sleeves also have ribbing at the hem. There is no increasing or decreasing, making for a very easy knit. The neck is a straight bind off and the shoulder seams are stitched together, leaving an opening for your head. Using our videos make knitting your sweater even easier. Start knitting today and you’ll be done in no time!
