This sweater pattern can only be found in Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures by Hannah Fettig of Knitbot. With a graceful neck fashioned with short rows, Lesley lends itself well to a closer fit in bouncy, warm wool. Knitted in a loosely spun aran weight yarn, it’s a comfortable pullover suitable for both indoor and outdoor adventures.
The pictured sweater is knitted seamless from the top down. If you prefer seamed knits, a second set of instructions is included to knit the pullover in pieces. This will yield the same result. For more on why you might choose one construction method over the other, see page 40 of the book. In both versions, the collar is picked up and knitted last.
If you are in-between sizes, Hannah suggests sizing down for a more fitted pullover. When choosing your size it is always a good idea to check your actual body measurements against all the measurements given in the pattern schematic.
GIFT SET includes selected yarn and the book Home & Away: Knits for Everyday Adventures. For yarn winding services, click here.
