New Pattern: Dundas Pullover

In between breaks from attempting to finish a fingering weight sweater in two weeks (don’t worry, I really am doing things besides knitting, I promise!), I’ve got a new spring/fall pullover pattern to share with you. This is my Dundas Pullover, available on Ravelry and Patternfish now!

This is a casual, almost ‘sweatshirt style’ sweater, easy to wear and a little bit airy thanks to the lace pattern panels. It’s my habit to knit cable patters when I design sweaters, but this year I’m trying out some lace options to stretch out of my comfort zone. I’ve also included some modern details for some stylish flair, using short row shaping to create a sloped hem that is slightly longer in the back than in front. (Although one could easily knit this straight and omit the short rows for a regular pullover hem) The cuffs are also a bit long, just the way I like them!

This sweater is worked in DK-weight yarn and is shown here in Tanis Fiber Arts Yellow Label DK, in ‘poppy’ red, which has been great to work with the last little while as winter has finally receded. I think this would work well in a variety of yarns, and actually if I had time I would love to do up another one in a wool/cotton blend.

It’s knitted seamlessly in one piece from the bottom up, with raglan shaping at the yoke, and a modest scoop neck for comfort. I’m liking this for the in-between days of spring and fall, or cool evenings in general. And glad to have the pattern out in the world!

I also want to give a shout-out to my friend (fellow knitter) Lisa who modelled this for me, who actually matched her shoes to the sweater, even though you can’t see it in the photos. I now desperately want a pair of red flats to wear this with. Dangit, Glenna, get it together of course you match your shoes to the sweater, what were you thinking.

Anyhow, whether your shoes match your sweater or not, I hope you have a great weekend ahead! Happy knitting.

  3. Searching for a sweater pattern using fingering weight. Live in Florida. Thanks, Forest Ummirain@gmail.com

  4. Hi Glenna, I love your blog and the projects you’ve featured so far.  I will be attempting the cardigan you featured in your last post (can’t recall the name…) and hope it turns out as nice as yours.  Good luck with your challenge. Chris

    Just lovely, that colour is wonderful, and the shoes are brilliant! Might be tempted to make it when my current WIP load has eased. Thank you for keeping the interesting blog posts coming, I love to hear from you.

    Now I have to choose yarn to match my shoes or is it the other way around? Lovely sweater Glenna.

    love this gorgeous new sweater!! And heck yeah- shows that match your sweater is a perfect outfit.

  8. A fingering weight sweater in two weeks? I’ve been working on mine since January. Of course, I had a baby before I got it finished, so that could be why it’s taking me so long.

    This is a lovely sweater. I really like the stitch pattern.

  9. Hello from North Bay, Ontario.

    I am just finishing sock #1 using your pattern ‘weekend socks’. What a lovely pattern. I am a beginner sock knitter and am thrilled with your pattern. It is the first pattern that fits my long narrow foot.

    I am wondering if you have a pattern for chunky wool for a heavier weight winter sock? The patterns I have used so far are great but are too wide for my 2AA foot.

    Thanks so much for your wonderful pattern! I can hardly wait until I get #2 done.😊

  10. I think I need to start adding short rows to the back of every sweater. That detail was actually the first thing I noticed (well, aside from the colour — it’s hard to miss red), and I love it so, so much. Not that the rest of the sweater isn’t also lovely. 🙂

  11. Very pretty! I love the color and I agree: long cuffs are better.

  12. Beautiful sweater pattern…and big question…what is the name of the shoe your friend is wearing? They are just lovely!

  13. Stylish and comfy – great combination!
    I like it alot, Glenna.
    So the 2-week challenge was a spoof? I hope so! ha. Would definitely
    keep you out of trouble.

  14. I like this pattern and will look into giving it a try

  15. I love Dundas & think it would be the perfect spring/fall sweater. It may even work well here in Virginia’s milder winters.

  16. this is gorgeous and the colour is divine! thanks 🙂 jenny xx
