Sometimes it's fun to approach knitting from a different perspective. Lillemor Sweater is worked sideways, from cuff to cuff, creating horizontal lines with a textured rib pattern that is easy to memorize. Once the top section is finished, stitches are picked up and worked in the round to the bottom edge to forming vertical lines. It's almost seamless, and is knit in fingering weight yarn for a lightweight pullover that can be worn well into the warmer months.
