Ship Shape Sweater Kit
This design by Heidi Kirmaier is knit seamlessly, top down, beginning with 2 separate pieces for the shoulder gussets. The yoke is a drop shoulder / raglan hybrid, making it perfect for playing with stripes, self striping yarn, or color blocking! Body and sleeves are knit in the round.
Skills required for this design include knitting flat and in the round, increases and decreases, and picking up stitches!
Intended to fit with approximately 10-17 cm (4-7 inches) of positive ease around the chest. The body length is slightly cropped and the sleeves are 3/4 length, but both can easily be modified as they are knit top down. Just make sure you have enough yarn if you plan to lengthen anything.
Sample shown in size S2 with about 15 cm (6 inches) of positive ease.
