An arrow drawn from a quiver — a straight line intersecting a distant target. Fehling is a graphic congruence of intentionality and form. Parallel lines of fine ribbing race from hem to collar, converging in graphic chevrons at the shoulders. This unisex pullover embodies understated daring with ease and shines on any shape.

Please note: the stitch patterns used for this garment include written as well as charted instructions.


Construction

  • Fehling’s body and sleeves are worked circularly from the bottom up and joined at the underarms, then the yoke is worked in a single piece to the beginning of the neck shaping. The yoke is worked back and forth while the neck is shaped. The collar is picked up from the bound off and held stitches and worked circularly.
  • Consider using the first sleeve as your gauge swatch, rather than knitting a separate swatch.
  • Instructions for the Circular Fehling Pattern are provided in both charted and written form.
