The Design

"Fuzzy, squishy—irresistible!"

The knitting of this pullover is straightforward—lovely fields of stockinette stitch! It’s the thoughtful styling details that add subtle elegance. The flattering dropped shoulder creates a roomy armhole (no fabric bunching under the arm), a little short-row shaping allows the front and back hemlines to hang evenly, and the length of the straight, boxy body is easy to modify! It’s a sweater you’ll wear and wear.

We knit this version of the Better-Than-Basic Pullover with one strand of Shibui Nest and one strand of Silk Cloud held together throughout. Nest is a bouncy, squishy, DK-weight yarn with an intriguing texture. Its blend of soft wool and alpaca melds perfectly with the silky fuzz of lace-weight Silk Cloud for a truly irresistible fabric!
