Stormwatch boxy pullover knitting pattern by Holli Yeoh | Tempest book

Stormwatch

Drop shoulder construction is taken to the extreme in this oversized, flowing pullover. Skinny three-quarter length sleeves give a contemporary look. Vertical bands of lace at each edge of the front and back add lightness and interest to the garment as well as a long and lean look to the wearer.
