Now availabe for purchase, the Bright Peak pullover in Schachenmayer original Boston. Kinda obsessed with the boat neck folks, and the square body with wide graphic stripes and an offest cable. This simple pullover is quick, and really at this point in the winter isn't that what we need? When all the best sweater intentions planned in October with the first nip of fall, shunted to the side after a barrage of Christmas knitting are now revisited in the depths of January. Do you have time for a whole sweater? You might, but you would have more time for a bulky pullover, with simple shaping and patterning. It would be done sooner, and it is a fun knit... I mean really fun..
This pattern uses one needle size, wide bands of 2x2 ribbing and no waist shaping or neck shaping. The sleeves are a modified drop which means that you do bind off some stitches at the underarm but the armholes are rectangles without complicated shaping. Of course with a sweater knit flat in pieces there is some seaming: the shoulders are joined with 3 needle bind off, the sleeves are picked up and knit from the armhole down, the bottom sleeve and side seams are joined using mattress stitch. But really a little seaming in bulky weight is worth it for such a cute wardrobe addition!
