Riddle Me This

Introducing Riddle Me This – a long-sleeved, textured pullover, knit loosely in Garter Rib throughout.  Worked top-down, its bodice and sleeves are knit flat at first, then joined for circular knitting to their I-cord trimmed hemlines.  Bodice shaping is made simply, by varying needle sizes along the way.  Sleeves are knit separately with short rows at their cap for smooth shaping and ease in setting in. 

I think you'll find this shapely pullover to be a fun project with a versatile result – enjoy!
