knit.wear Fall/Winter 2018: Pebble Pullover
The Pebble Pullover is on my must-make list for 2018! Not only was it designed by one of my favorite knit designers, Susanna IC, it also captures texture, color, and cozy in all the best ways. This is just one more knitterly reason to dive into the pages of knit.wear Fall/Winter 2018.
The Pebble Pullover uses the pebble stitch, which gives the sweater just enough texture to be interesting but doesn’t consume as much time as the complicated cable stitch does. The pebble stitch is worked in a 4-row repeat, so it’s simple to memorize and helps getting into your knitting groove easier. My favorite part about this sweater is how it combines the textured pebble stitch throughout the body, with a simple line of stockinette stitch up the center. This captivating design feature is reversed on the sleeves, with the majority of the sleeve in stockinette and a small band of pebble stitch up the center. Each part of the sweater maintains the perfect amount of texture.
I also love the color of this yarn! It is a rich truffle brown with a hint of plum that makes me want to curl up inside my house and knit all day. The yarn blends wool, silk, and cashmere, so you know it is incredibly soft and splendidly warm for those long winter days. Best of all, this yarn is a bulky-weight yarn and the sweater is worked on larger needles, so this sweater will work up quickly.
