Interweave Knits Fall 2018: Yarmouth Pullover

The Yarmouth Pullover is truly a tribute to cables. From the stunning central panel to the sides and sleeves, this sweater is made for cable addicts and aficionados alike. And I wouldn’t want it any other way.

This sweater pulls me straight to the East Coast—the white cables remind me of intricate boat knots, and the slanted twisted-stitch panels remind me of long ropes keeping ships tied to the docks. I can almost feel the chilled breeze and smell the salt in the air. But this sweater is anything but nostalgic: the twisted-stitch panels and side vents modernize this classic pullover for a new age. So while the cables comfort, the construction brings a dynamic new vision to the cabled boating sweater.

The yarn, Stacy Charles Fine Yarns BioMerino, will give you a warm, soft sweater with drape—perfect for chilly outings or curling up with the windows open on brisk fall evenings. And the sweater is worked back and forth in pieces and seamed, so you can start on it right now!
