Highlights Pullover is a drop-shoulder construction sweater, worked from the top-down. To begin, the front and back yokes are worked flat separately, with shoulders shaped by short rows, worked in Garter Stitch. At the bottom of the armhole, the front and back yokes are joined and the body is worked in the round until the high-low split hem. The sleeves and collar are worked after completion of the main body.

Highlights Pullover is a worsted weight sweater, intended to be worn with a semi-relaxed fit of 2.5–5.5” / 6–14 cm positive ease. This design features stripes / bands of texture throughout, worked in a combination of Stockinette, Garter and Slip-Stitch patterns. This design includes a high-low split hem (the front being shorter than the back) and full-length sleeves. Highlights Pullover is adorned with a touch of colorwork on the Sleeves and includes an option for contrast color duplicate stitching colorwork, inspired by visible mending.
