Silver Birch Pullover
This slightly cropped, boxy pullover is perfect to throw on for a jaunt around town or a day at the office, we used a twisted rib stitch to give the vertical look even more pop! The back hem is slightly longer than the front giving it a modern feel. The sweater is knit flat from the bottom up and seamed. The directions now include two methods for the sleeves, knit separately and sewn in or pick-up and knit sleeves.
