Huntington Castle Pullover
Robin Melanson was inspired by her favorite fiddle tune "Huntington Castle," a slow air played in E minor, for this hooded sweater. The haunting tones led her to images of eerily shrouded figures stalking about a foggy moor. The body is worked in the round to the armholes, then divided for front and back, which are worked back and forth in rows to the shoulders. The set-in sleeves are also knitted in the round to the armholes. To prevent the color work sections from drawing in too much, Robin has knitted them using a larger size needle. The shaped hood is worked from the neckline to the crown. The final row of hood stitches is divided in half and the loops are invisibly grafted together to close the top.
