"Newleaf" by Jennifer Steingass includes options for short or long sleeves. Fingering or sport weight yarn makes this garment light weight and versatile. This piece is knit top down, seamlessly and in the round starting with a simple rolled neckline. With its easy to follow colorwork chart, this pattern is suitable for beginners and experienced knitters alike. While the sample hits at upper hip, you can easily add or subtract length if desired. Just try on as you go and choose the length that’s best for you.
