The bobbles imitate the flower buds on the cusp of exploding into full bloom while the remaining fair-isle pattern mimics the stems and leaves.
This short-sleeved circular yoke pullover is worked in the round from the top down.
Two shaping choices are provided for the lower body. The first is a no-shaping option used for the sweater shown where the lower body is a straight tube having the same number of stitches at the lower edge and bust. The second choice is a slight hourglass option with gentle waist shaping and a hip circumference about 1¼” to 1½” larger than the bust circumference, depending on size.
