The Abelina Pullover is a challenging-to-knit pullover, with steeks at the cuffs and stranded colorwork in the body, sleeves, and shoulder. The pullover is knit in the round, until the shaping in the sleeve and shoulder, which is worked using yarn over short rows. This rewarding knit will keep you engaged with every stitch. Our fingering weight Shetland yarn is a perfect fit for the intricate floral and geometric colorwork, knit in Oatmeal and Russet.
