The Summit Pullover is a modern take on the traditional Fair Isle–yoke sweater. This cozy pullover is knitted from the top down, transitioning from a stranded-colorwork design on the yoke into a two-toned blouson-inspired shape. Slightly puffed three-quarter sleeves with a hint of colorwork complete this delightful sweater.

NOTES

  • This pullover is worked in the round from the top down.

  • The charts are worked using the stranded method. Always pick up the background color over the pattern color and pick up the pattern color from under the background color. Keep floats loose. For floats longer than four stitches, tack stranded yarn on wrong side of work.
