Prelude is a pullover that you want to wear at the beginning of the season and all the time.
It's a simple long-sleeved T-shirt, but it has slits at the neck and hem, so you can play around with matching innerwear and accessories. The thin finish makes it easy to wear as a jacket and can be worn for many seasons. Although it's called Prelude, it seems like it can be enjoyed from summer to midsummer.

The yarns are La Bien Aimée Felix (or Helix) and Isager Trio 1. The knitted melange of different materials is beautiful and feels nice to the touch. The key point is the vertical line (flower stitch) that goes into the body.

Knit the body from the side using back and forth stitches. By creating a gusset on the shoulders, you can create a sagging shoulder. The front and back sections are knitted separately, and a cut is made in the center of the front section. Once the neck part is finished, knit the front and back parts together again, reduce the gusset part, and finish knitting the body part. Stitch the armpits to your desired length, then pick up the sleeves and knit towards the cuffs.
