Pattern description from Weekend Knitting: “Margrit Lohrer named this comfortable, quick-knit pullover after a beautiful region of New York and Massachusetts. The Berkshires are a very popular destination for weekend travelers looking for a mixture of idyllic scenery, arts and culture, fine dining, outdoor sports, and tranquility. A great place for a vacation chockful of knitting! Margrit compares the simplicity and comfort of this pullover to our favorite sweatshirts, the ones we want to won in every color and wear every weekend. This sweater is worked in one piece to the underarms, then the front and back are worked separately to the shoulders.”
