Yours. (Parker Head is a CustomFit pattern and will be created to your choice of size.)
This pattern is available from customfit.amyherzogdesigns.com for $12.50.

Parker Head is available through CustomFit - each Parker Head pattern is created specifically to your choice of measurements and gauge.

Parker Head is one of the designs from the Fall 2015 make. wear. love. retreat in coastal Maine. You can customize your own in CustomFit, but here are the details on my version: With elbow sleeves, a wide mock-turtleneck neckline, waist shaping on the back only, and a versatile mid-hip length, this pullover is comfortable and classic.

The front and sleeves of the pullover are worked in Dot Texture, and the back is worked in Stockinette to facilitate waist shaping. Please swatch in Dot Texture for this garment. Jackie is shown wearing Parker Head in an average fit.

I used The Woolen Rabbit Emma, in the color “Grey Goose”, for this sample. Emma is a luscious, warm, comfortable polwarth-silk blend that comes in a ton of drool-worthy colors, and I can’t recommend it highly enough.

One more note on yardage – while I’ve given approximate quantities for standard size sweaters, CustomFit will make Clearview in the size and gauge of your choice. And it’s pretty tough to give yardage requirements for any possible combination! If you’re not using the recommended yarn, and/or you’re not a standard size, I recommend Hannah Fettig’s amazing app, stashbot, to get a sense of your yardage requirements.
