Pattern of the Week: Follins Pond Pullover
The knitting season is upon us and to usher it in Interweave Knits presents the Follins Pond Pullover by Moira Engel as our Fall 2018 cover project.
This quintessentially Knits sweater kicks off an issue dedicated to cables, cables, cables! Yes, three mentions of cables are needed because this sweater is ideal for jumping into a cables project. The symmetrical, traveling stitch central cable pattern is easy to follow, and the generous Aran weight of Hikoo Kensington makes this sweater fly along. Check out the ten vibrant to classic neutral colors available in this luscious chunky tweed.
Inventive cables, a casual fit, and buttery soft yarn are calling this fall. Start this sweater now and you’ll be seaming it together before the first chill enters the air.
