The twisted cables on the Janus Pullover have quickly made it the must-make design from Knit.Wear Winter 2017. The sweater is built on Woolstok by Blue Sky Fibers which has gorgeous colors in beautiful heathers. The pullover features three-quarter sleeves and a boxy fit to flatter almost every body shape. The body of this pullover is worked in the round to the underarm, then the upper front and back are worked separately back and forth. Stitches for the sleeves are picked up and the sleeves are worked in the round from the top down, with the sleeve cap shaped using short-rows.
Kit includes knit.wear Winter 2017 (pattern inside) and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
