This lightweight, casual pullover for women is knit in the round from the bottom hem up. It features an easy slip-stitch colorwork pattern at the neck and sleeve cuffs. Sleeves are knit in the round from the cuff upward, and joined to the yoke. Simple garter-stitch contrast stripes highlight the sweater hem, sleeve hems, and neckline. The garment is slightly shaped at the waist, and is designed to fit with 1-2” inches of ease.

Note that the yardage given is the amount needed for the Main Color (MC). The contrast colors will each require less than 1 ball to complete the colorwork portion of the pattern.

Inspired by the colors of the fall orchards in Vermont, and the long tradition of cider-making in the state, it’s a great casual layer to wear to the farm stand, or out to pick your own in the orchard.
