Sorrel 2.0 is a short sleeve pullover sweater knit in one piece from the bottom up in multiple girls and ladies sizes. The simple welted knit and purl detail at the hem and circular yoke adds just the right detail without being fussy. The small gauge makes this top comfortable and practical for wearing alone in warm weather and for under a sweater in cooler weather. The seamless construction adds comfort as well as being a time saver for the busy knitter. This fairly easy project is great for advanced beginners and beyond.
