Culm (printed pattern)
Simple details like a doubled collar, split center hem, and decorative eyelets at the shoulders, hem, and cuffs make the Culm pullover a garment that is as polished and shapely as it is a pleasure to wear. The dolman sleeves, nipped waist and drop shoulders create a subtly vintage silhouette. The body and twist of Peerie yarn lends even more depth to the all-over moss stitch and panel of crisp twisted ribbing.
The hem is worked flat, then joined to continue working circularly to the armholes, and then the front and back are worked separately to the shoulders. Shoulders are joined together and then stitches are picked up for the sleeves, which are worked circularly to the cuff. The collar is picked up and worked circularly, then folded over and sewn into place.
