Knitscene Savoye Pullover Knit-Along

Hello Knitters! I am beyond excited to start my first knit-along with all of you! I love the community that exists around this craft and can’t wait to hear your stories and see the photos you share!

For this knit-along I have chosen the Savoye Pullover designed by Theresa Schabes. To get this pattern, buy the spring issue of Knitscene magazine or get the Knitscene Spring 16 Digital Download.

There are 5 awesome reasons I have chosen this pattern for a knit-along!

  1. This is Theresa’s first pattern in Knitscene, and I think it’s pretty great.
  2. That high neckline is a picture of grace and I want to learn how to do that unique neck shaping!
  3. This sweater uses the slip-stitch crochet technique to create vertical lines, which I explored in my last post, When Knitting and Crochet Meet.
  4. This pattern uses some fantastic wool yarn, and since we are still worrying about snow here in Colorado, I could use another wool sweater. I can’t wait to get my Rowan Pure Wool Superwash DK in the mail from Westminster Fibers!
  5. This is a very loose fitting sweater that comes in a variety of sizes. I noticed many knitters in the last Knit-Along expressed frustration at the lack of plus size availability in the written pattern. This sweater’s largest size is 58 ½” bust circumference and since it is worked mostly in a stockinette stitch with a drop shoulder, it is easy to add stitches to the pattern if you need a larger size (or use a larger needle than the pattern calls for).
