Scandinavian-style colorwork applied to a thoroughly modern shape makes Galloway an eye-catching piece that’s engaging to knit and pure fun to style. The exaggerated deep V of the open fronts can be overlapped and belted closed or left to hang in sculptural freedom. Trim raglan shoulders keep the fit tidy and stable above. Worked in the round with a steek, this pattern teaches and hones advanced knitting skills. The single-ribbed edge is picked up and worked after cut edges are secured, with a tubular bind-off to match the tubular cast-on at the hem and cuffs. Indulge your love of color with four hues from the Shelter palette, but rest assured that only one round of the chart uses three colors at once.


The body and sleeves are worked circularly from the bottom up and joined at the underarms, then the yoke is worked in the round. A steek is used to create the front opening. The center front steek is secured and then cut open before picking up stitches along the front and back neck edges for the collar/band piece. After the collar/band is worked, the steek is neatly tacked to the WS of the garment, either with yarn or sewing thread.

20 stitches & 28 rounds = 4” in Lice section of Galloway Chart (Rounds 16–32) with Size A needle, after blocking
20 stitches & 22 rounds = 4” in Colorwork section of Galloway Chart (Rounds 1–15 and Rounds 33–69) with Size B needle, after blocking

Note: Correct length of the garment is dependent upon achieving the stated round gauge.


Size A (for Stockinette Stitch and Lice Section of Galloway Chart)
One each 24” and 32” circular needles and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)

Size B (for Colorwork section of Galloway Chart)
One each 24” and 32” circular needles and one set of DPNs, one size larger than Size A
Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)

Due to significant variance between knitters, your colorwork fabric should be swatched prior to knitting your sweater to determine whether or not Size B should be larger, smaller or equal to Size A. Please read about Speed Swatching for Circular Knitting (see Special Techniques).

Size C (for Ribbing)
One 32” circular needle and one set of DPNs, three sizes smaller than Size A
Suggested Size: 3½ mm (US 4)

Size D (optional; for Tubular Cast On only)
One 32” circular needle and one set of DPNs, one size smaller than Size C
Suggested Size: 3¼ mm (US 3)

Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.

32” circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (e.g., Sleeves).
