Irina Pullover Knitting Pattern
Named after the beautiful Russian ballerina Irina Baronova, this pullover is a fitted sweater with elegant cables that swoon across it in panels and garter-stitch dividers for shaping. This timeless sweater is worked in the round from the bottom up to the armholes, then knitted flat to the square neckline and shoulders. The luscious texture is created by combining Rowan Felted with Rowan Kidsilk Haze.
