Biggy Print Pullover
Pattern Description from Interweave Online Store: “The designer was drawn to this soft chunky yarn by its unusual qualities. It includes flecks of nearly every rainbow color, but reads as a subtle, almost neutral yarn, so it’s a good choice for both girls and boys. The straight-forward, no-fuss style goes with just about anything - from jeans to a party dress. To offset the extra weight of the yarn, Kristin uses specific construction/design techniques to eliminate extra bulk: a minimum of seams, built-in buttons, and edgings worked in one piece with the body. Because it knits up quickly, the sweater is a perfect in-a-hurry project.”
