Pattern of the Week: The Gingersnap Pullover
The release of Coffeehouse Knits destroyed all of my 2019 knitting plans. Thanks to this book, I have nine must-knit projects bumped to the top of the list. I know you probably already know this, but I look at a lot of patterns. And wanting to knit nine projects from a single publication is crazy rare. That being said, this book is amazing and the first thing on my needles is going to be the Gingersnap Pullover.
“This classic pullover is topped with a wide, flattering neck and an interesting hem, both trimmed with I-cord. Garter-stitch columns create depth of texture and achieve a strong vertical dynamic without sacrificing drape. The garter stitch behaves beautifully with a bateau neckline because it is not inclined to curl. Made with simple knits and purls, it makes for perfect coffeehouse knitting.” — Cheryl Toy
