Miss boule is finally gone ‘live’. I wrote about her here

Miss boule is a seamless pullover worked from the top down in 1 piece. Starting with shaping the back and shoulders, stitches are picked up for the front and sleeves and are worked following the contiguous sleeve method, developed by Susie Myers.

The ‘boules’ are worked as intarsia color blocks ‘in the round’. It is much easier than it sounds, really. Detailed descriptions, tips and a lot of illustrations are included in the pattern.

The hems and cuffs are worked in corrugated ribbing seperated from the body and sleeves by an ‘estonian braid’

Best worn with negative ease or no ease.
If you should want more ease, it’s best to start with the numbers of the size closest to yours and add more increases for the body and sleeves.
