"Lately, I've been experimenting with sweaters whose sleeves are knitted with the body of the sweater, kimono style. No separate sleeve pieces to knit. No sleeve caps to shape and sew in. The only trick is to get the shoulder to curve nicely over the body," says PAM ALLEN about the FLUTTER SLEEVE CARDIGAN. Short-rows create the curve as well as the peak of the ribbed midriff.
