Laura Aylor's Rhinecliff
pullover is knit seamlessly from the top down with simultaneously knit
set-in sleeves in a method inspired by Barbara Walker in her book
Knitting from the Top.
Stretchy ribbing makes it form-fitting and the waist is nipped in by a round
of cable crosses. The cable crossings can be omitted if you prefer. The
sweater shown is being worn with about 3 inches of negative ease. Sizes
given include 1 to 3.5 inches of negative ease. Because of the stretch of
the ribbing, positive ease is not recommended.
To maintain the stitch pattern and still provide a full
range of sizes, two different stitch gauges are used. Sizes XXS, S, M2, and
L use a stockinette gauge of 20 stitches/4”, sizes XS, M1, M3, and XL use a
stockinette gauge of 19 stitches/4”. I couldn’t enter both in the gauge
field so I used the average!
Skills used: Short rows (for shaping shoulder slopes
only), Picking up stitches, Increasing, Decreasing, Backwards loop and long
tail cast-ons, 5 over 5 cables and Sewn bind off
