The Great Island Pullover is a cozy, luxurious garment with sharp tailoring, thoughtful cable placement, and a deep V-neck for a fashion-forward look. Take care to choose a yarn that will provide stitch definition to show off the cables and tailoring. This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces and seamed.

Notes This pullover is worked back and forth in separate pieces and seamed. The shoulders are shaped using the “English tailoring” method, which shifts the shoulder seam toward the back instead of on top of the shoulder. This means that the front armhole is longer than the back.
