ERRATTA: It seems that the gauge listed on the pattern download is incorrect. the gauge stated on this page is correct (24stsX34sts per 4”.) I am working to get it rectified ASAP.
This is the sport weight version of the Marshall Pullover, and was designed for the Knit Picks Independent Designer Program using their wonderful Andean Treasure 100% alpaca yarn. You can buy the pattern and yarn together at the Knit Picks Website HERE
The MARSHALL SPORT Pullover
The best sweaters are not the ones that are bought as fashion accessories; but the ones that you want to wear even if no one is around. The MARSHALL SPORT pullover is just that sweater. Knit from a100% baby alpaca yarn, its luxurious feel will make it a favorite for going out or staying in.
Alpaca yarns are popular for their softness, and wonderful hand, while their hollow fibers keep you warmer than wool. The MARSHALL sweater was designed to take advantage of the unique qualities and increased drape of alpaca yarns.
The MARSHALL pullover uses seamless construction with form-fitting ribbed body and sleeves, while saddles knitted in a reinforcing slip stitch pattern give the shoulders more structure and a better fit.
Sized to fit 36, 40, 44, 48, 52 inch chest.
If you purchase this pattern, you will receive access to both the Sport weight and the Worsted weight versions of the pattern.
Special thanks to model Kevin and photographer Joe of Joseph J Lee Photography for the wonderful pictures!
