Valley Yarns 1353 Citrumelo is a fantastic pullover for snuggling into all winter long! This chic sweater has a casual style accented with sporty stripes and a cozy foldover neckband. Bouncy Chester yarn has a bouclé texture and a soft feel, and its blend of wool and alpaca ensures that you’ll be toasty warm even as the temperature drops. Citrumelo is knit in the round from the bottom up to the underarms, where the back and front are completed separately and joined at the shoulders with a three-needle bind-off. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole edges and worked in the round to the cuff with stripes matching the body. Designed with a roomy fit made for layering, Citrumelo will be a go-to choice for casual outfits.
