Pattern update - April 2019. There are two versions.

The difference is the sections Increases AND Increases and decreases. Those in version 2 is described in line by line, and those in version 3 has simplified instruction. The reason is that some knitters have found line-by-line version easier, while some said simplified one more intuitive. See which one suits you.

You know how a great invention in history sometimes resulted from a naiive mistake. Juraku pullover is not one of those world shaking inventions for sure, but it is to me when I found small stitch movements by making wrong increases. My eyes popped out, my mouth opened drooling, tons of bright colours sparkling in my head for a while. Several months later, Juraku pullover was born.

Take a look at my awesome and fearless testers’ creations. Some go with solid colour, some with variegated, some with stripes, some with colour blocking, some with speckles, etc. Each pullover shows a stunning and different result, yet the unique textures and the stitch movements still shine through. Based on these tests, choose yarns and create your own treasure!

Juraku pullover is a top down pullover, but don’t presume you have made this kind of construction. Surprise yourself as you work, and enjoy every step. It will be ready to wear before you know it.
