Opuntia is a classic, remarkably comfortable everyday pullover, fitting every body shape and every wardrobe! I designed my version to go well with jeans, but you can simply make it waistlong to match it nicely with dresses or skirts. The details on the arms and mid-height collar, which can be rolled, are its only embellishments. Using rib as the main stitch underlines its modern look and makes it elastic and fitting the body.

Opuntia is a very minimalist pullover, which is a perfect match for many different occasions! Its main features are modern collar and interesting arm shaping. Whole sweater, except cuffs, is made in Rib 1×1 pattern. It makes the fabric both soft and spongy, and definitely catches the eye.

The pattern is totally beginners friendly. You can easily adjust this sweater to your preferences and body shape without doing complicated calculation. If you would like to modify length of your body or sleeves, just remember about the crucial features of Opuntia to reach the proper effect.

Simple design with interesting lines, meditative k1p1 and the softness of mohair. And this neckline!
