This pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down in the round. The yoke is worked in a hybrid of ‘round’ yoke and raglan shaping with subtle neck shaping integrated into the yoke construction. The body and sleeves are separated and worked seamlessly to the cuff.
Why knit with fingering weight held double? Because of all the amazing custom marl combinations, I shared some of my favorites on the Savory Knitting blog. The colors I chose for my Moxie, Logwood + Bittersweet, are a perfect match for New England foliage, the brilliant orange Bittersweet is tempered just enough by the purple-y grey Logwood, proving that once again nothing does color the way nature does.
The pullover shown uses 2 strands of fingering weight/sock yarn held together throughout, substitute a heavy DK/Worsted weight yarn to get gauge using a single strand. If the marl look is not your preference the Swans Island Natural Colors Merino Worsted comes in all the same shades as the fingering weight and knits at exactly the right gauge.
