This close fitting, hip length sweater is worked using entrelac and constructed in such a way that the pattern is not interrupted anywhere for shaping. The shoulders are seamed in such a way that they look like they could have been knit that impossible way – how better to befuddle and confuse?

The sleeves on this sweater are quite angular and stick out somewhat from the body. I came up with several potential solutions for this: you could knit a smaller size and the extra could be taken up in ease, you could switch to smaller entrelac squares after the row of foundation triangles are completed to start the sleeves, or you can try to bring down the volume after you finish the pattern with blocking, steaming, or a row of reinforcing crochet.
