Poca is a seamless side to side sweater made with my Novus Construction. It is designed to be a lighter weight fall jacket, with dolman sleeves, a relaxed fit and integrated pockets. If you have never knit a Novus Sweater before this is an easy pattern to dive in with… if you have then I think you will be highly amused with the modifications I have made to the construction!

Clasps available here!

I’m doing my first ever “structured” sweater KAL!

I’ll be releasing videos with tips and tricks on this schedule:
Phase 1- Aug 2nd- Gauge Info and Choosing your Size!
Phase 2- Aug 23rd- Working the Sleeve and Dolman Shaping!
Phase 3- Aug 30th- Finishing Up the Right Half (Pocket, Shoulder, Splitting for the Neckline)
Phase 4- Sept 13th- Left Half Tips and Tricks
Phase 5- Sept 27th- Back and Side Panels!
BOOM October 18th- FINAL Day to post Finished Poca’s for ALL.THE.PRIZES!

Note: When you purchase the pattern you are getting the entire pattern at once (not clues). The KAL will help you keep your knitting on track, create community, and ensure that you have a sweater before Fall is here in full force!

There is a KAL thread set up here:
