Frontier

Frontier sweater

Frontier is a longer tee with subtle A-line shaping to just under the bust, a shape which I find very flattering. Frontier also features folded hems and a drapey boatneck at front, accentuated by contrasting colour.

The tee is worked bottom-up in separate pieces. The shoulders are shaped with short rows, and then joined by 3-needle bind-off.

Techniques used

Decreases: k2tog, ssk, p2tog, ssp
Increases: make one right and left, right-leaning and left-leaning lifted increases
Short rows with wrap-and-turn
3-needle bind-off
Set-in sleeves

 

The pattern can be puchased as a PDF through Ravelry download.
