CONSTRUCTION:
QUILL is knit from the bottom up in one piece to the underarm where the front and back pieces are separated and knit to the shoulders. Once done, the shoulders are joined with 3 needle bind-off. The sleeves and collar are all picked up and knit and shaped with short rows. The pocket bag and opening are completed last.

SKILL:
Intermediate - increases, decreases, simple cables, short rows, slipped stitches, 3 needle bind off, putting stitches on hold and working later

EASE:
Recommended ease is 2-6” / 5-15 cm at chest, 0-2” / 0-5 cm at bicep but keep in mind ease is a personal preference so more or less is fine

  • Teal colour sample is size 2X (50.5”/128.5 cm chest) shown on a chest that measures 47.5”/121 cm. Bicep has 2”/5 cm of positive ease.
