Dark Moss is inspired by the endless moss-covered landscapes of Ireland. The original sample, made in deep green rustic Irish yarn, is a tribute to this beautiful green island. It is a simple yet elegant pullover, designed to be oversized for a comfortable relaxed fit. The side slits add a modern touch to an otherwise minimal raglan pullover with elegant cables spiralling up the body and mock neck.

The pullover is worked bottom-up in the round with the sleeves knitted top-down from the underarms. Since the two samples I knit have different gauges and I like both of the looks, this pattern includes 2 size options with different amounts of positive ease.

The sample in Green is less oversized with
ca. 20 cm (8 in) of positive ease, whereas the sample in Grey is more generously oversized with ca. 30–40 cm (12–16 in) of positive ease. By playing with the gauge you can achieve one of the two looks.

Sizes

The pattern is written for nine sizes 1 (2, 3, 4, 5) (6, 7, 8, 9) to fit 74 (84, 94, 104, 114) (124, 134, 144, 154) cm // 29 (33, 37, 41, 45) (49, 53, 57, 61) in bust circumference
