The Whitehorse Pullover is inspired by all of the things that make a sweater your favorite sweater: not just comfort and coziness, but also a simple, timeless texture with the ability to be dressed up or dressed down. Whitehorse is a traditional drop shoulder sweater; to contrast with the oversized fit of the body, the arms have a slimmer fit.
Whitehorse is knit flat from the bottom up in pieces and seamed. Stitches are picked up for the turtleneck, which is worked in the round. A tubular cast-on and cast-off are used for the body, sleeves, and neck to ensure that all of these edges have sufficient stretch.
