Road to Giza

Add a touch of luxury to your wardrobe with this colorful, deceptively simple pullover. The wavy stripes that circle the yoke and upper arms are created with slipped stitches, introducing just a hint of extra texture. Utilizing slipped stitches also means that you don’t have to fuss with multiple strands of yarn—you never use more than one color at a time. Simple ribbed trim and moderate waist shaping result in a close-fitting, feminine sweater, and with a luxurious yarn like Shalimar Yarns’ Paulie Worsted—blending super soft merino, camel, cashmere and silk—you’ll have no problem wearing this one right next to the skin.
