- drop shoulder
Decadent texture mimics the structure of a wooden trellis. Imagine an old rose garden that has overgrown over years of neglect. Climbing roses carry on without the consideration of human neglect.
Lace adorns the shoulders of this dropped sleeve pullover. This classic scoop-neck pullover is upgraded by easy-to-knit lace pattern and side ribbing detail. A sporty splash of rib finishes the shoulder detail. This is an easy to wear pullover for casual spring days that require style and comfort.
Designer Note on Construction: The pullover will be worked from the bottom up in the round until the underarm. The fronts and back are then worked separately in lace stitch, while shaping the neck. The shoulders will be joined and then the sleeve stitches will be picked up and worked in the round down to the cuffs.
