“When Fall arrives, I love bringing my favorite ‘knockaround’ sweaters out from summer storage and reintegrating them into my wardrobe. This classic pullover is an homage to coziness, featuring a generous cowl neck worked in squishy Brioche Stitch, a subtle A-line silhouette, doubled sleeve cuffs, and a Brioche Stitch yoke. The graphic Brioche columns spotlight the full-fashioned shaping details at the garment’s shoulders and neckline.” –Jared Flood


CONSTRUCTION

  • Yarn is held double throughout; the term “working yarn” refers to two strands held together as one.
  • Body is worked circularly from the lower edge to the underarm point. Stitches are bound off for underarm, and then the front and back of the yoke are worked flat for the remainder of garment.
  • Sleeves are worked circularly from the lower edge to the underarm point. Stitches are bound off for underarm, then Sleeve caps are worked flat.
  • Cowl is picked up directly from neckline and worked circularly.
