Worked in the round from the bottom up, the Sheepscot Pullover combines a classic cable with a simple lace, which are a pleasure to knit up together. Green Mountain Spinnery’s worsted weight Maine Organic (organic sheep from organic Maine farms processed using GMS’s Greenspun technique, then certified organic by the Vermont Organic Farmers) shows off both the sculptural cables and the crisp lace.
