Esme is a long-sleeved sweater knit mostly with shade #9063 Columbine with a pop of new shade #9023 Wild Ginger at the sleeves and neckline. Knitting begins with the bottom body, working the front and back hems separately before joining to work in the round with an all-over textured stitch pattern. The sleeves are knit with the same stitch pattern, and it's carried through the raglan-sleeve shaping before the ribbed collar is knit.
