Inspired by the classic shape of a ballet leotard, this graceful raglan pullover is designed in a color appropriately named Ballet Slipper. The pullover is worked in the round from the top down. Increases and decreases positioned along the center front and back draw in the waist, and the lower body and sleeves are slightly belled. Worked with a double strand of yarn at a gauge of just 3 stitches per inch, this top is as quick to knit as it is fun to wear.
