Find Adine Light on Ravelry HERE.
Just like the DK weight version Adine Pullover, Adine Light is based on a favorite stitch pattern that appeared on both my Bonnie Banks Shawl and Bonnie Banks Wrap. It has options for both 3/4 length sleeves and a sleeveless version.
Body is worked in the round from the bottom up to the underarms, where fronts and backs are divided. Increases are made at the shoulder to “tilt” the shoulder slightly for a more flattering fit. Short rows are worked across the shoulders on front and back before bind off. Shoulders are seamed and then stitches picked up for sleeves, which are worked from the shoulder to the wrist. Stitches are picked up around the neckline for ribbing.
A note about fit: sweater is designed to have positive ease in the body but fit snugly in the sleeve for a more flattering fit. Because of the shape and ease in this sweater, the armhole hits at the upper arm rather than the armhole, and the measurement of the armhole reflects that.
