This sweater is knit in pieces from the bottom up. The polar bear motif is worked using the intarsia method.

This sweater came about from the combination of a relative’s request and my own design preferences. We both loved the tonal variations of Mrs. Crosby’s yarns and the luxurious fibers take this simple pullover with a classic shape from basic to extra-special. Generous positive ease allows for a cozy feeling in a modern, sophisticated pullover.
