Staten Island is the southernmost of the five boroughs that comprise New York City. Sometimes called “The Forgotten Borough” by local residents, it is worth a visit for its beautiful parks, museums, and cultural centers. These include a large portion of the Gateway National Recreation Area, Historic Richmond Town, the Conference House Park, the Snug Harbor Cultural Center and Staten Island Botanical Garden, as well as numerous beaches. The free Staten Island Ferry takes 30 minutes to cross New York Harbor from Lower Manhattan, and offers stunning views of the Statue of Liberty. I’ve spoken to many New Yorkers who admit to taking a Staten Island Ferry trip just for the views. A short walk from the ferry terminal you will find the Richmond County Bank Ballpark home to Minor League team, the Staten Island Yankees.

Simple stitch patterns, and one piece construction make this pullover a breeze to knit. Fingering weight yarn is worked at a loose gauge for a casual, loose fit that is prefect for summer evenings or early fall days. The variation in color of hand dyed yarns add an extra bit of interest while allowing the stitch patterns to shine.

IMPORTANT NOTE: With hand dyed yarns like the Yarn Collective Fleurville used for this design, I recommend that you alternate two skeins of yarn throughout in order to prevent pooling and the abrupt changes in color that are normal with hand dyed yarns. I prefer to alternate the skeins every 1, 2, or 3 rounds randomly for the most natural distribution of color.
