Pattern of the Week: Sandy Neck Pullover
Fresh out of the pages of Interweave Knits Fall 2018, the Sandy Neck Pullover is a timeless, cabled pullover handsome enough for a man and charming enough for a woman. It’s pretty clear over here at Interweave we celebrate knits for all people, and the Sandy Neck Pullover is our standout unisex design this fall.
Here’s what we love about this sweater: its relaxed fit, the strong central cable, the intertwining snake cables, the sweet simplicity of the ribbed mock turtleneck, and the panels of easy stockinette stitch. Since this pullover is made in pieces, it’s an easy travel project; take a piece with you for a fall foliage ride, a hike in the woods, or a autumnal walk along the beach.
If you want a durable, soft, and rich yarn check out JaggerSpun’s Heathers Worsted Weight for a TON of color options at an affordable price. You’ll find hues to suit any wearer, but really—just keep this one for yourself.
