A staple for spring. Throw this crop pullover over a dress or wear with a longer shirt that will peek out underneath. This sweater knitting pattern is knit in stockinette stitch; Version One, the same tension throughout and Version Two you will alternate the needle size to achieve a tight and loose tension throughout. The shaping is the same in both versions. Version Two is pictured above. Have fun!
