This women’s pullover is knit from the top (neck) down to the bottom hem. Stitches are cast on for the neckline, and then the sleeves and front and back of the garment are shaped with the use of raglan increases. The neckline and waist are worked with 2-color stranded knitting patterns of a stylized thorn and rose motif. The hems and neckband are worked in a 2-color garter stitch pattern.
You will need approximately 1146 (1146, 1910, 2101, 2674, 2865) yards of a fingering-weight yarn to complete the project as written:
- MC—sage green #4215, 4 (4, 6, 7, 8, 9) balls
- CC1—dark pink #465, 1 (1, 2, 2, 3, 3) balls
- CC2—light pink #479, 1 (1, 2, 2, 3, 3) balls
