Heartfelt Pullover

In stock
Product Details

Skill level: Intermediate

An off-center cable starts and stops down the front of this cozy, yet sophisticated, oversized top-down pullover. The Heartfelt Pullover features drop shoulders and minimal seaming for a comfortable fit and a happy knitting experience. The standout feature is the beautiful (and simple!) cable panel that adds a touch of elegance to this classic pullover. The Heartfelt Pullover can be worked in a heavy worsted weight yarn or, as shown in the sample, by using a combination of lightweight yarns held together.

Construction Details:

The Heartfelt Pullover is worked from the top-down with minimal seaming. After working the body from the top-down and seaming the shoulders, stitches are picked up around the armhole for the sleeves. The sleeves are worked in the round over a small circumference.
