POW: Angelina Pullover by Mary Anne Benedetto

It’s hard to select a favorite sweater from Interweave Knits Fall 2017. I’ve been working with these projects for months and I’m still torn. But Mary Anne Benedetto’s Angelina Pullover really stands out.

I am always ready to throw on a black sweater. There’s something so classic and elegant about them. Pair one with even the shabbiest of jeans, and you’ve got a nicer outfit.

But the Angelina Pullover isn’t just any regular sweater. The yoke features stunning wishbone-shaped cables that increase in size with the body of the garment. Bell-like sleeves and a curved hem add a youthful touch to this great piece.

This top softly wraps you in comfort and warmth without any bulk or weight, thanks to Cumbria yarn from The Fibre Co. It’s a must-knit for this fall season.

    I actually loved the look of the Angelina so much that I dove into my stash and started on it almost immediately. The cables aren’t too difficult and just went I was over knitting cables it was on to the stockinette stitch. I can’t wait to finish!

    I love the sweater — but the magazine made a mistake in photographing this series of dark items of clothing against a dark background. The sweater was almost impossible to distinguish from the wall in print in the magazine.
    I understand the need to be “artsy” but this is after all promoting a project that will take a great deal of time and expense to create. I would prefer that knitting magazines take our need to see the details of the finished product more into account. The online viewing option is a helpful alternative that I appreciate.

      I totally agree with you Terry, there are so many patterns that I have passed on because the pattern was hard to make out in dark wool.
