Funnel Neck Pullover Using Shibui Cima and Twig
Akin to a favorite sweatshirt, but a little more refined, this boxy pullover slips easy over layers or wears perfectly on its own. We love it all week long, all year round! This sleeveless version drops neatly off the shoulders for a relaxing fit.
We chose a lovely combination of Shibui’s Cima and Twig, the perfect fabric for a piece that transcends seasons. The alpaca and merino of Cima meld beautifully with Twig’s linen and silk to create a cool, supple fabric with a graceful drape.

We love the versatility of this garment. Play with different yarns or yarn combinations to create a fabric you’ll love. Make sure you knit a generous swatch, one that’s at least 6” x 6”. And don’t skip the wet blocking. After your swatch has a chance to rest, it will tell you if you’ve got a nice fabric that has both drape and body.
With the generous amount of ease built into this garment, try thinking in terms of what type of ease you would like, instead of a specific size. You may find that there are multiple sizes that would suit you, lending to a wide range of styling options!
When knitting with two strands at the same time, stop periodically to check for any dropped strands. It’s not the worst thing that can happen—dropped strands are easy to fix, especially if you catch them early.
