The Evergreen Mountain Pullover features striking sculptural and textural lace on the back and front, with patterning that’s easy to memorize and satisfying to knit. The body of this drop-shoulder pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces and blocked before the neck and sleeves are worked in the round.

Gauge 21 sts and 26 rnds = 4” in St st on larger needles; 20 sts and 27 rows = 4” in Lace patt on larger needles, blocked.

Notes The front and back of this pullover are worked separately from the bottom up. After blocking, the side and shoulder seams are sewn. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down.

ERRATA: The chart is correct, but the legend should say “knit on RS; purl on WS” and “purl on RS; knit on WS” (as you do whenever you are knitting back and forth in rows). All the other stitches (yarn over k2tog, ssk) are correct in the legend and none of them are worked on the WS.

The chart is also missing WS row numbers on the left.

Read the chart as you would any chart when you are working flat, back and forth.
