Intro to Ravelry special 10% off Colors pullover pattern
February 8 - February 18, 2022, no coupon needed

Everyone needs a little color in their life and this sweater fits the bill perfectly. Colors is a comfortable pullover worked in combination of smooth stockinette stitch with vibrant insets of mosaic colorwork featured at the lower body and the upper sleeves (the colorwork is charted and written row-by-row).

Size inclusive, this pullover is knitted with a raglan yoke from the top down in one piece, without waist shaping, making it appropriate and flattering for women and men. The length of the body and the sleeves can be easily customized to just about any length thanks to the top-down construction. The simple stockinette and vivid mosaic create an interesting interplay of colors and subtle textures, and help make this an engaging project with minimal finishing.
