The ULLA shirt is a simple pullover worked in brioche stitch, featuring a boat neckline, slightly shortened sleeves, and a straight, short, cut. The design is inspiredby 60s style shirts.
This model is worked top-down in one piece, by initially casting on the stitches for the entire back as well as the sleeves. The neckline and shoulders are then shaped with short rows and then worked straight down to the armholes.
The front part is worked (almost) in the opposite direction. You will then knit the bottom of the sleeves together, and finish working the body in rounds. No sewing is necessary. Finally, and depending on your preference, you can either crochet around the neckline to tighten the fit or use an elastic bind-off technique.
