Inspired by the Isle of St. Kilda in the outer Hebrides, this standard fitting pullover provides more ease at the hips for a roomier fit over jeans. Body and set in sleeves are worked in the round to the armholes, then worked flat. There is just enough Fair Isle to keep this pullover fun and just enough stockinette for quick knitting.
