Home: a place for celebrations large and small; the simple joy of bringing forth a treasured handknit from its resting place and reminiscing on seasons past. Rhyllis is the beloved companion that you wear with everything, from jeans to flannel pajamas. Warm and lightweight in woolen-spun Shelter or Tones, the trim saddle shoulders and cozy folded collar are accentuated by hearty moss stitch and cables with vintage appeal in a thoroughly modern top-down, seamless construction.

Construction

  • This pullover is worked seamlessly from the top down beginning with the shoulder saddles. Stitches are picked up from the saddles for the front and back, which are worked flat separately to the underarm, then joined and worked circularly to the bottom hem. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up from the armholes and joined with live saddle stitches, and the caps are worked flat using short-row shaping; then the sleeves are worked circularly to the cuffs. The body hem and cuffs use an optional tubular bind off. The ribbed neckband is picked up and worked circularly, then folded over and sewn to the pick-up round.
