This is a great project for beginners who want to graduate to a garment after "just knitting scarves." . You don't even need to know how to purl to make your first sweater a success. Or even a quick knit up sweater that you can easily work up while chatting with your girlfriends or even on the road traveling. Flattering shaping comes from changing needle sizes, and the open stitch work top creates the drop shoulder. Seam shoulders, leaving 8-12" for neck opening--you choose how flirtatious you want the shoulders to be! If desired, work a row of single crochet around the neck and arm edges.This is perfect over a camisole or turtle neck, or simply on its own.
