Laura Aylor shares the story behind her Sun Rose
pullover..."I love and have been using Barbara Walkers top-down, seamless,
simultaneous set-in sleeve method for most of my sweaters. Its my favorite
way to get a set-in sleeve - no seaming and no short-row sleeve caps with
the annoying little holes around the arm. It is a bit fiddley at the start
however, so Ive come up with a modified version that is a little simpler -
fewer steps at the beginning, no tiny pieces to start with, no short rows at
all, and fewer ends to weave in. This DK weight pullover is basic, easy,
very wearable and has the simplest of touches - a bit of stretchy garter at
the shoulders to conform to your shape, a simple garter-edged scoop neck,
3/4 sleeves, gentle waist shaping , and an easy eyelet edging."
NO short rows!
NO provisional cast-on!
NO finishing other than weaving in ends!
