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.
