POW: knitscene’s Troposphere Sweater
Hannah is so excited to share this Pattern of the Week with you, she is jumping for joy!
This rustic pullover features a simple chevron pattern on the body that’s created by holding strands to the front when working slipped stitches. The sweater is worked bottom-up and in-the-round, and the sleeves are created from picking up the armhole stitches. These two factors keep seaming to a minimum, with only a simple three-needle bind-off at the shoulders.
The drop shoulders and modest boatneck give it everyday wearability in hardy Harrisville Designs flyWHEEL. Choose any of these colorways, a range of earth tones, for a classic fall sweater you’ll be able to rock for years to come.
