Level of difficulty: easy! This is knitted in four pieces and seamed together. There is a pick-up and work around the neckline to make a neckband.
This attractive and simple pullover is quite short to just below the waist, although you can make it longer if you wish. The set-in sleeves are three-quarter length but could be made longer or shorter to just above the elbow. The neckline is slightly squared.
The whole pullover is worked in stocking stitch with a ridged purl garter stitch edge to hem, sleeves and neckline. Several variations are suggested at the end.
Sizes in cm/ins are from 81 / 32, in 2"/5cm imcrements to 122 / 48
Actual size is about 2"/5cm larger for ease.
Yarn needed is from 450g-550g
Any Blacker Yarns Double Knitting yarn can be used. The photographs are of a version in Shetland, but this pullover is ideal for our new Classic British yarns, as well as for the luxury Corriedale with alpaca yarns, pure alpaca or the softer British breeds yarns such as Blue-faced Leicester (with flax would be nice for summer), Shetland, Jacob or Manx with mohair. If used for layering it could also be made in some of the stronger yarns.
