Short Description: The Conversion pullover celebrates your inner (mysteriously practical) rock star. Inspired by beauty of ballet, but with the attitude of urban street wear, this pullover will amp up your wardrobe AND keep you warm. This four-season-sweater is knit seamlessly from the neck down using the contiguous yoke technique developed by Susie Myer. A touch of short row shaping gives the Conversion pullover the perfect fit. The sleeves are knit past the wrist with a thumbhole to keep your hands warm, and can be easily folded up as temperatures rise. You can wear this sweater with your favorite tank or dress without covering up your favorite outfit. Quick and satisfying, the cropped cut is flattering and fun to knit.
