Notes

My boyfriend really wants a pullover, I kid you not.

This is a self-designed buttom-up + round yoke pullover. First I tried a yoke with textures reminiscent of Danish fishermen ganseys, but the look was too heavy. I have replaced that with a slip-stitch pattern with stripes of leftover Noro and slipped in some optical illusions.

It fits really well and I’m quite in love with the way the yoke works. I might have to nick the idea for myself and do it in contrasting colours so the slip-stitch pattern pops (two of the stripes on this one blend in a bit too much). On the other hand, do I really want to knit “his’n’hers” pullovers?
