From the Designer:
This pattern is (intentionally) the same basic pattern as the Habañera Pullover with the addition of a few extra rows at the back of the neck (just after the cast on) to allow for a bit more coverage (that is otherwise provided by the cowl in Habañera). Sometimes it’s nice to make and wear something basic. The Chanteuse Pullover is just that--a top-down, seamless pullover worked almost entirely in the round with ¾ raglan sleeves. Make it in a basic sock yarn for an everyday, go-to sweater, or jazz it up with a special luxury-fiber yarn. Either way, you’re sure to look wonderful with a custom fit. Shaping to the waist and hips is accomplished along princess “seams” to allow for maximum customization. Also included in the pattern is a general How-to for adding Horizontal Bust Darts (HBD) as well as a section “A Few Thoughts About Fit” for advice on how to adapt the shaping to your own fit preferences.
