The Fogline Pullover is knitted from the top-down with circular yoked construction. Balanced increases throughout the yoke create a randomized, pixelated quality by interrupting the slipped st lines that flow down the sweater. The sweater has a cropped, modern silhouette. The back neck is shaped with short rows. There is no body shaping.

Spincycle’s dramatically-dyed Dream State transforms garter stitch from sensible to super-rad. The color changes are boldly highlighted when tucked in between the Farmer’s Daughters’ saturated horizontal stripes in a contrasting color. Or choose to make a more subtle piece choosing main and contrast colors in the same tonal palette. This pattern would be so good knitted up as a fade or in a speckled yarn. This pattern is also a great opportunity for stash busting! Use that gorgeous, kinda loud skein of handpaint that’s been haunting you. Hold two fingering weight speckles together - your imagination is the only limit!
