The beauty of Beauty is its seamless set-in sleeve construction. The body and sleeves, which are worked separately to the armholes, begin with a bit of lace followed by broken ribs. The yoke is shaped with decreases worked on the body to draw in the armholes, then the sleeve stitches are decreased to shape the caps. A few short-rows are worked to finish the caps and shape the neck, then the shoulders are joined with a three-needle bind-off.
How did I learn this, you ask? Well… I didn't alternate skeins, and it resulted in a really obvious dye-lot change, right across the chest.
Or, of course it's also really elegant in a solid-colored yarn, like the one I used in the sample that was photographed for the book.
If you've never tried it, I highly suggest giving this design a try. Or, the Trust Pullover… a different style sweater, made with the same sort of construction, AND a cool seamless pouch pocket.
