Timberline Lodge is such a fun pullover to make and to wear! The color blocking is an easy textured stitch pattern that uses only one color per row. Gauge works for DK, sport, and heavy fingering yarns.

Ribbing detail at the shoulders really shows off the drop shoulder construction and makes this a perfectly unisex pullover.

The pattern includes options for cowl, double-crew, and funnel neck and you can make that decision at the very end after you try it on. Shoulders and sleeve caps are shaped with short rows and there are also optional short rows to add a bit of extra length in the back for wearing comfort. Try it on as you go (the beauty of top-down and seamless) and make it exactly the length you desire.

Timberline Lodge will look great in any light DK, sport or heavy fingering yarn that meets gauge and has good stitch definition. This pattern is accessible to an advanced beginner knitter.

Sizing is inclusive with intended ease of 4-6 inches / 10-15 cm.

This pattern has been professionally tech-edited and tested.
