Lovesee Road is my road, the road I live on. It’s my road home … and the perfect name for my new sweater, which, like my space here on this road, is relaxed and familiar, a comfort and a joy.

Lovesee the sweater is worked in a pretty basketweave rib, with a companionable textured-rib shawl collar.

It is knitted from the bottom in pieces and seamed, although it could easily be worked in one piece to the underarm, eliminating selvedge stitches. Pockets are knit in. Shoulders are shaped with short rows and finished with a 3-needle bind off.

Sizes: XS (S, M, M/L, L, XL, XXL); recommended for chest sizes 28-32 (32-36, 36-40, 40-44, 44-48, 48-53, 53-58).
Shown in size M/L on a 36” dress form.

Techniques used: Tubular cast on (preferred), short rows, 3-needle bind off.

(Here’s a link my Wrapless short row method, used here):

Yarn: 9 (10, 11, 12, 12, 13, 14) skeins any Sunday Knits 5-ply (worsted weight) yarn (137 yds per 50-gm skein).
Substitute any worsted-weight yarn that works nicely to gauge.

Pattern includes: Written instructions, stitch patterns in both written and charted formats, schematic, glossary.
