With a graceful neck fashioned with short rows, Lesley lends itself well to a closer fit. Knitted in a loosely spun aran weight yarn, it’s a comfortable pullover suitable for both indoor and outdoor adventures. The pictured sweater is knitted seamless from the top down. If you prefer seamed knits, a second set of instructions is included to knit the cardigan in pieces. This will yield the same result. In both versions, the collar is picked up and knitted last. If you are in-between sizes, I suggest sizing down for a more fitted pullover. When choosing your size it is always a good idea to check your actual body measurements against all the measurements given in the pattern schematic.
