PATTERN NOTES
Light and lofty, this pullover really is like wearing a beautiful cloud. A complex blend of alpaca, wool, and mohair along with the stunning long color shifts in Revolutions makes for an intriguing fabric. Stitches are kept simple in this project to let the beauty of the yarn shine through.

The Weightless Pullover is worked seamlessly in the round. The front and back hems are knit separately, then joined together at the side split and worked in the round from the bottom up. Shoulders are joined using the three-needle method. Sleeve stitches are picked up and knit from the top down.

This sweater is intended to fit with a generous amount of positive ease. To determine the best size to make, measure your arm upper arm circumference. Choose a size with a Sleeve measurement that is the closest to this.

Revolutions is a yarn featuring slow color shifts. To ensure your project looks as close to the sample as possible when breaking and rejoining yarn, be sure to visually match the point at which you’re rejoining. This may require you to wind off some yarn. We promise the results are worth the effort!
