Not all sweaters can be worn without sometimes feeling a little overheated, but Goode definitely can! With short sleeves and a breezy, flattering dolman shape, it’s the perfect shirt-style pullover for all seasons.

The most interesting aspect of this design is the v-neckline with an incorporated I-cord edge. It wraps around the back of the neckline and is grafted for a seamless, tailored-looking collar. (Don’t worry, that doesn’t mean it’s difficult!)

Worked in stockinette stitch using Purl Soho’s Linen Quill, the fabric is light and has a wonderful drape. And with Linen Quill’s generous yardage, you’ll be surprised how few skeins you’ll need to knit this entire project!
