Messing about in boats
This is a slightly boxy, comfortable pullover to live in or mess about in.
The placement of the pockets magically creates a waist line even as the sweater is knitted straight without shaping
Messing about in Boats is knitted like all Ziggurats that is, in one piece, top-down, shoulders and sleeve caps knitted in one sweep, and then all in the round including the built-in pockets to just before the hem, where a bumforgiving slit requires a bit of back and forth knitting.
A simple rib collar is knitted on last. Not a seam in sight. Honest.
