Outer Space is a chunky variation of Enchanted Mesa. It’s offered only in the sample size, but if you wish to have a smaller or larger size with other yarns then follow Enchanted Mesa which is also included when you purchase this pattern.

Go big and bold with this chunky color blocked top down pullover. Short rows with yarn over shaping form the asymmetrical yoke. Then, a solid stockinette section is knit on a bias for the body. Garter stitch shorts rows in another contrasting color bring the fabric back to a straight waistline. Push the ribbed sleeves up to transform the short rows into dramatic shoulder pleats. Outer Space is chunky version of the Enchanted Mesa design.
