for Trendsetter Yarns   2007

3605A Minestrone Pullover

This is exactly the sort of top that makes non-knitters' mouths hang open, and makes knitters give you a smile and a wink. Because the wonderful novelty yarn does all the work in such basic designs as these. Even though this garment sports set-in sleeves, the instructions still take up less than have a page. Welt and cuffs are garter stitch. Once you've completed the garter cuff, you decrease sharply across the row before starting the st st; this gives a slight flare. Otherwise all is plain st st. The back is the same as the front, with a dipped neck; neckband is finished in the round in garter, too. Both sides of the fabric would be interesting, so you may after all wish to assemble it with the reverse st st side dazzling the world.
