Pattern Release – Secret in my Pocket

Secret - 1 (2)

Secret in my Pocket is a comfortable, drop-shoulder jumper. It is worked seamlessly from the top in one piece, beginning with the neck edge. The shoulder slopes are shaped with the use of the contiguous sleeve method. The front and back are worked separately down to the underarm. The body is formed by joining the front and back at the underarm. Finally, the sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole edge and shaped using decreases.

The project shown is worked in a size M2 and is worn on a model with a 37”, 94 cm bust, making for approximately 3.5“ of ease.

I hope you enjoy this pattern and look for my other designs on Ravelry. You may contact me on Ravelry should you have any questions or comments. My user name is Adnama.
