POW: knitscene’s Troposphere Sweater

Hannah is so excited to share this Pattern of the Week with you, she is jumping for joy!


knitsceneThe Troposphere Sweater from knitscene Fall 2016, designed by Allison Jane, is a beautiful take on a classic sweater style.

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.
