Simple details like a doubled collar, split center hem, and decorative eyelets at the shoulders, hem, and cuffs make the Culm pullover a garment that is as polished and shapely as it is a pleasure to wear. The dolman sleeves, nipped waist and drop shoulders create a subtly vintage silhouette. The body and twist of Peerie yarn lends even more depth to the all-over moss stitch and panel of crisp twisted ribbing.

Yarn

  • 7 (7, 9, 10, 11, 13) skeins of Brooklyn Tweed Peerie (100% American Merino Wool; 210 yards/50 grams)
  • Photographed in color Burnished

Note: The second size takes almost exactly 7 skeins. You may wish to consider purchasing an extra skein due to variations in individual work.

Yardage

  • 1280 (1470, 1690, 1945, 2235, 2570) total yards of fingering weight wool yarn
