Inspired by our Lykens Hat, the Lykens Pullover is a classic shape that is updated with a modern high/low hemline. The contrast between the slip stitch honeycomb on the front and Stockinette stitch on the back creates the gentle curve of the hem (no short rows required).

The sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up; the sleeves are worked and then joined to the body for the yoke shaping.

The sweater is designed to fit with 1-2" of ease. The sample is shown in 33.75" chest with 2" of ease.

The sample is shown in Faun (Main Color) and Silt (Contrast Color).

In addition to needles, you will need removable stitch markers: 2 in Color A, 3 in Color B; and a yarn needle.
