Part of the beauty of knitting an entire sweater in stockinette stitch is that it can show off the colorful texture of gorgeous hand-dyed yarns. Yet the pattern that is chosen for the edgings can be used to bring a bit of unique detail to the sweater and make it a little more interesting to knit. The Dreamy Pullover can be knit with the welt edging pattern, as shown, or with any range of edgings. I've included some ideas for other possible basic edgings that could substitute into this, or many other patterns in No-Sew Knits. Also, check out the tip about alternating skeins of hand-dyed yarns.
