Hillwalker is now 2 patterns in 1 download--
the original pullover and now an “after-thought” cardigan!

Hillwalker is inspired by the need for a simple sweater to knit-while-walking the mountain where I live. In my opinion this design is the easiest sweater to knit, and the most attractive one too! Hillwalker is a classic and essential wardrobe item, for women, men, teens & kids. A circular yoke seamless style perfect to showcase tweed or your handspun. Excellent clean canvas for your own embroidery, contrast edging, or stranded colorwork ideas to give it your own inventive touch!

Construction is bottom up, in-the-round, with short rows working neckline into a relaxed crew style. Pattern is written for gauge 5 sts = 1 inch in worsted or dk weight, but includes substitution chart to adapt to many gauges, from sport-weight to bulky-weight, broadening size range from 26” thru 60” in many yarn weights.
Great for beginners’ first seamless sweater,
or for a weekend knit!

Now Added: Hillwalker Cardigan is an “after-thought” pattern based on Hillwalker Pullover, in a choice of knit in-the-round & steeked, or knitted flat with selvedge – just because I wanted the challenge of writing a double tasking cardigan pattern! I’ve tried my best to merge two options so that you can have a lovely cardigan variation of Hillwalker that you find enjoyable to knit.
