The Weld version of Adams by Sloane Rosenthal is lighter, but just as cozy at its worsted weight twin. This pullover is constructed identically as the Forge version, worked from the bottom up in pieces, starting with an optional tubular cast on. The set-in sleeve features a full-fashioned shoulder construction for a better fit. The sweater is blocked and seamed, then the cowl is picked up and knit in the round.
