Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Winter “Hana Jason slips stitches all the way up the sleeves of the Woven Bands Pullover. Worked sideways in one piece from cuff to cuff, linen stitch adds a simple, straightforward embellishment to collar, cuffs, and yoke.”

Finished Size: 40 (42, 44, 46, 48)“ chest circumference. Sweater shown measures 42”, worn with minimal ease.

Yarn: Cascade Ecological Wool (100% wool; 478 yd 437 m/250 g): #8087 brown, 2 (2, 2, 3, 3) skeins.

Needles: Size 10½ (6.5 mm): 32” circular (cir). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.

Notions: Stitch holders or spare cir needle; tapestry needle.


  • This sweater is worked with a one-piece construction and unfinished edges for a raw, deconstructed look. If desired, finish neck edge with a single row of reverse single crochet or by picking up stitches all around, working in stockinette for ¾“, and binding off loosely for a roll-neck collar.
  • Work moves from the right-sleeve cuff, to the body, to the front and back panels in separate pieces, to the rejoined body, down to the left-sleeve cuff.
  • Work linen-stitch portions loosely and block carefully to maintain gauge over pattern changes.
