As soon as I finished knitting my Gartrell Cardigan I knew that I needed a pullover version! This classic crew neck shape is my absolute favourite style of sweater to wear. It’s comfy and cozy and classic cool. For me, the beauty of a seamed garment lies in the ability to make misatched sleeves! The way the colourful stripes on the sleeves line up perfectly, but don’t match, with the colourful stripes on the body is pure magic. This sweater is a blank slate for you to make your own with stripes, intarsia, colour blocking. Have fun with it!
