Woven Bands Pullover
Pattern Description from Interweave Knits, Winter 2008: “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.
