The Glimmer Crop was inspired by my Glimmer Hat pattern. It features stranded colorwork and a modern crop fit with relaxed ease.
This sweater is knit from the top down beginning with the collar. Short rows are added to the back for a better fit then it’s onto the colorwork chart. The circular yoke features stranded colorwork and shaping increases. Then the sleeves are put on hold and the body is knit to your preferred length. Instructions for a crop or longer version are included. The sleeves are then returned to the needle and quickly knit for a short sleeve versatile sweater.
