Interweave Knits Fall 2018: Quincy Pullover
My only experience with teaching was as a TA in the Introduction to Cultural Anthropology course at K-State when I was a junior in college. I taught two small recitation classes, and I hated it. It didn’t take long for me to realize I didn’t like planning lessons, and my impatient nature disallowed me to really dive into certain concepts my students would have benefitted from continuing to work through. Since then, I’ve known I don’t ever want to be a teacher.
That said, the Quincy Pullover from Interweave Knits Fall 2018 makes me want to become a college professor just for the fashion. The styling in the photography is so empowering and makes me think that the model is the smartest (and sassiest) woman on the planet. She clearly does not take any BS. I want to be her!
The Quincy Pullover is a comfortable tunic-length pullover with an elegant combination of cables and textured stitches that mimics an argyle pattern. This pullover is worked in the round from the bottom up and uses short-rows to lower the back hem.
