    About Pyrite

    Pyrite is a boxy pullover with deep v-neck, ¾ length sleeves and all over cables. It is knitted seamlessly from the bottom up, starting with the long ribbed hem, then worked in rounds up to the armholes, where stitches for back and fronts are separated and worked flat, up to the shoulders.

    When both fronts and back are done, the shoulders are grafted together. After the body is completed, sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole, and worked down to the cuffs in rounds.
