Boothill pullover is a modern, slight A-Line shape with a flattering split hem and straight bracelet length sleeves. It’s knit seamlessly and in the round from the top down.

This easy pullover features a multi-color, textured slip stitch yoke and sleeves. You knit with just one color per round! You’ll essentially be knitting the pattern in two round stripes, with slip stitches and the occasional planned purl. What makes this design extra special is the addition of a new yarn, Berroco Tiramisu. Tiramisu is a lovely self-striping yarn with the soft halo of mohair. It’s quickly become a favorite of mine!

Choose your main color, a contrast color, and a Tiramisu (or a single ply long color changing yarn with solid color mohair) in a shade coordinating with your main body color.

The Slip Stitch Pattern is written line by line and charted for your knitting style preference.

Shown in size 42” with 4” of positive ease
