Worked seamlessly from the shoulders-down, the pullover's set-in sleeves are created simultaneously with the upper bodice in a technique originally described by Barbara Walker (no seaming!). Stripes in 3 colors keep the knitting fun, though it also looks smashing in a solid color.
Shaping for this fitted pullover is accomplished at the sides to avoid any bending of the stripes at the front or back of the garment. The pattern includes a section on customizing the fit to your own preferences as well as a how-to (in a separate pdf) for adding horizontal bust darts for additional tailoring. Special consideration must be given to creating HBDs on a striped sweater to avoid interrupting the stripe pattern with short rows.
The technique is a fiddly at first, but a photo tutorial is included with the pattern to help you along.
