Open Collar Pullover (October) by Elizabeth Zimmermann

Open Collar Pullover (October)

Summary: This is a open-collared pullover sweater, or golf sweater, with raglan sleeves, a placket and collar. Directions are given for both knitting the body and sleeves separately and assembling, and for knitting the sweater top-down in one piece.

Gauge note: In true Zimmerman fashion, gauge directions are to make a swatch, measure your stitches per inch, and then multiple the number of stitches per inch by the desired sweater measurements to determine how many stitches to cast on.

Yarn note: No specific yarn is given. EZ uses “real Shetland wool” with a gauge of 18 sts = 3 inches for the numbers given in the example.
