Grey Space is a top down, circular yoke sweater, featuring a textured funnel neck collar, a slightly deep yoke and 3 - 8” / (8-20) cm suggested positive ease for a perfectly oversized fit.

Knit in Nature’s Luxury yarns “Homey Nature” held with “Silk Divine” for the contrast portions, this sweater has a rustic yet refined feel.

This pullover is finished with a hi-lo “tulip” hem, created by German short row shaping. Additionally, this sweater is designed to include extra-long sleeves with optional thumb holes!

Grey Space is my new favorite wardrobe staple!

Pattern Notes
During testing, some knitters experienced curling of the collar which flattened back out with wet blocking.

Woolenspun yarns (such as Nature’s Luxury Homey Nature) hold structure more so than worsted-spun (which will drape). Keep this in mind for when you are selecting your yarn. Worsted-spun yarns or blends with alpaca / cashmere or silk will result in more of a cowl neck collar.

My sample shows a contrast yarn at the cast on edge. This small detail is not included in the pattern, but can be easily achieved by working your cast on with a complimentary color and then switching to MC for Rnd 1.
