Conversion Pullover

a cropped show stopper



You are up and out the door before the sun comes up. It is chilly, but not cold enough to put on a jacket. This little pullover is the perfect solution for you. The Conversion Pullover keeps you warm without covering you up. It is knit seamlessly from the neck down using the contiguous yoke technique developed by Susie Myer. A small amount of short row shaping gives this sweater the perfect fit. The sleeves are knit past the wrist with a thumbhole to keep your hands warm. Quick and satisfying, the cropped cut is flattering and fun to knit. Can’t decide if you need a sweater? Convert.
