Long car rides are rarely a problem for knitters – in fact, they are often welcome opportunities to combine uninterrupted knitting, chatting with friends, and taking in the sights. It was during just such a drive in Poland that we crossed the Tuga River. This pullover is the perfect project for a day in the passenger seat or for any other friendly get-together when you don’t want your knitting to distract you from your chatting, and vice versa. Stockinette makes for soothing and easy knitting, while the side-to-side construction and occasional color changes keep it interesting and engaging.
