Because of the nature of Loft, it is highly recommended that you seam the garment with a sock or sport weight yarn in a similar color.
The Semilla pullover is a basic seed stitch pullover with easy eyelet accents evenly spaced throughout the body. The eyelet accents are also added as a decorative detail on the sleeve cuffs. The seed stitch is rhythmic to work and the eyelets create a fun break in the knitting. With an attractive boatneck and an easy fit throughout, Semilla can be worn alone or easily layered.
Semilla is worked in pieces from the bottom up with no waist shaping. Sleeves are worked from the bottom up with sleeve shaping and set-in sleeve caps. Once all pieces have been knit and blocked they are seamed together. Stitches are picked up evenly around the neckband and worked in the round.
