Laura Aylor's Bud is
a simple little pullover for your rosebud or little buddy. Based on Aylor's
Sun Rose pattern which uses a simplified version of Barbara
Walker’s top-down seamless simultaneous set-in sleeve construction. There
are fewer steps at the beginning, no tiny pieces to start with, no short
rows at all, and fewer ends to weave in. Bud features a bit of stretchy
garter at the shoulders, a simple garter-edged scoop neck, 3/4 sleeves, a
slight a-line shape, and an easy garter edging with optional eyelets.
Samples shown were knit in madelinetosh 80/10/10 sport which actually knits
up nicely at a DK gauge. Note: specific striping directions are not
included in the pattern but information is given so that you can plan your
own striping sequence.

Skills required: Long-tail cast-on, Backwards-loop,
