The Design

“Classic, cozy, woolly!”

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 Better-Than-Basic Pullover in The Fibre Co. Cumbria—a gorgeous, worsted-weight blend of merino wool (for softness!), English Masham wool (for heathered color), and Argentinian mohair (for luster!). Cumbria was named for England’s stunning northwestern county, and its color palette was inspired by its deep blue lakes and sheep-grazed fells—natural, romantic, and breathtaking!
