Better-Than-Basic Pullover Using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter

Better-Than-Basic Pullover Using Brooklyn Tweed Shelter

“A cozy basic with your favorite sweatshirt feel!”

We keep finding new yarns (and some old faves) that work for our Better-Than-Basic Pullover, published alongside the Go-To Cardigan and the Modern Wrapper Fine. When Brooklyn Tweed’s marls arrived, we knew we had to knit our pullover again with this lofty yarn. The marled yarn elevates the simplicity of classic stockinette stitch, bringing a whole new depth to our old favorite.

For a roomy sweatshirt feel, think about knitting it up a size larger for yourself. It’ll be just as cozy and comfortable, while keeping that touch of casual elegance.

The knitting of this design is straightforward: stockinette stitch with a couple of simple ribbing patterns. It’s the thoughtful styling details that add subtle flair. The flattering dropped shoulder creates a roomy armhole without the usual excess fabric bunching under the arm. The slim, straight cuff tapers up to the armhole. And a little short-row shaping allows the front and back hemline to hang more evenly when worn. Knit flat in pieces, and sewn together when the knitting is complete.

A new take on a Classic!

Pick up the pattern and your yarn below (see the Knitters' Notes tab for suggestions on fit and sizing, and then the Basic Details tab for how many skeins you'll need for your size). We’ve chosen some favorite shades of Shelter here, but if you’d like to see the full selection of colors, just head over to the Brooklyn Tweed Shelter page.
