Hi-V Slimline Pullover

I think I mentioned that I'm trying to get caught up on formatting and posting my designs... here's another one, the Hi-V Slimline Pullover (one of the very first I did for Schaefer Yarn).

My favorite thing about it is the fabric (Elaine is a thick-n-thin yarn, and I love how squishy it is in garter stitch), and the points over the hands.

There were originally points on the lower hem too, but Cheryl vetoed those--a good idea, in retrospect, since it's much more versatile without them.

And the details:

Finished Measurements
Bust: 38” (42”, 46”)
Body length: 22” (23”, 24”)

Note: This sweater has a snug fit. It looks great on, even though it looks strange when off.

About 1000 (1100, 1200) yards thick-n-thin bulky yarn. Sample was knit with 4 skeins Elaine from Schaefer Yarns (100% merino wool; 8 oz/300 yds)
32 or 36 inch circular needle size US 11, or size needed to obtain gauge
One set of size US 11 dpns, or size needed to obtain gauge
Spare circ needle
5 stitch markers (1 should be different than the rest)
Tapestry needle

12 sts/24 rows = 4” in garter st.

$6.00 for a PDF.

(Sorry this is kinda boring to read... I'll write a real post shortly!)
