Combining our Sparrow and Kestrel linens together to create an eye-catching statement in sleeves, Norah’s Gambrel pullover is a really fun piece to knit. Worked flat, center front to center front, its fronts and back are divided to work wide circular openings for the armholes. From there, sleeve stitches are picked up and worked in concentric circles of lace ladders, alternating Sparrow and Kestrel to create the beautiful openwork on its shapely sleeves. A simple crochet trim finishes off the neck and joins the front pieces down the center.
