Interweave Knits Winter 2019: Crystal Pullover

The circular yoke pullover is everywhere these days. According to friends who were lucky enough to attend, it was the sweater style at Rhinebeck this year.

Cheryl Toy’s interpretation features a lacy double crystal motif that is as fun to knit as it is beautiful to see. Worked seamlessly from the bottom up, the rest of the sweater is easy-peasy stockinette with bands of garter stitch at the collar, cuffs, and hem. It’s a perfect marriage of quick, mindless knitting and enough lace to make it distinctive.
