Sample Notes: This version is worked in four colours. The
yoke is worked in yarn A, and then we suggest changing
to yarn B before working the dividing round. Work in yarn
B until body and sleeves are 2cm / ¾“ shorter than your
desired length before cuffs and hem. Work in yarn C for
2cm / ¾” on both body and sleeves, before joining yarn D
to work cuffs and hem. The neckband is then picked up
and worked in yarn A. This version features a plain hem
and a folded neck

Gauge: 20 sts & 32 rows = 10cm / 4” over garter stitch
worked in the round on 4.5mm needles after blocking.

Needles: 4mm / US 6 circular needle, 60-100cm / 24”-40”
length depending on size worked AND 40cm / 16” length AND needles suitable for working small circumferences
in the round
4.5mm / US 7 circular needle, 60-100cm / 24”-40” length
depending on size worked AND 40cm / 16” length AND needles suitable for working small circumferences
in the round
Always use a needle size that will result in the correct gauge after blocking.

Notions: 4 stitch markers (including one unique for
beginning of round), scrap yarn or stitch holders,
tapestry needle

Notes: Grainne is worked top down in the round with raglan increases and optional short rows at the neck. At the underarm, sleeve stitches are put on hold and the body is worked in one piece. This pattern provides instructions for two hem options, a straight hem or a split hem. The sleeve stitches are picked up and sleeves are worked down in the round. Finally, stitches are picked
up around the neckline and either a short neckband, a high neckband or a folded neckband is completed.

Note: The shorter neckband sits better when the optional
short rows have been worked during the yoke shaping.
This pattern has a 2-st Stocking stitch faux-seam running
down each side of the body and underneath each sleeve.

This pattern is a template for a single-colour pullover and
does not include instructions for colour-blocking. Please
consider the ‘sample notes’ for each example if you are
planning to replicate one.
