Ainur Berkimbayeva’s Center Point Popover defies convention and is “sweater” in a whole new language! Roomy and cropped with an extreme drop-shoulder construction, the Center Point Popover is a marvelous meld of math and design. To work the Center Point Popover, you knit the front and back separately, from the center point out, then join them and shape for the hips and shoulders. You pick up for the sleeves and work them in the round, stopping soon after for short sleeves or continuing in 2×2 rib for long ones. Next, work the neckband and be done, or keep going with a big, cozy hood! For a year-round sweater with a lovely drape, knit this in our wonderful Tulip Cotton, or for a woolly, warm, and cozy version, try knitting it in our gorgeous Linen Quill Worsted!
