SHIBUI LUCINA SWEATER

Lucina is worked in the round, from the bottom up, starting with a knit hem. The body is shaped at the sides using invisible increases, while the armholes and necklines are shaped using simple decreases and binding off stitches. The shoulders are seamed together using the 3-Needle Bind Off Method. The sleeves are worked top-down and shaped using short rows, then joined to work in the round. To finish, the neckband is worked in the round from picked up stitches around the neckline.
