The Design

"A touch of sheerness, a touch of texture."

The effortlessly elegant Blond is just the sort of pullover we adore in our wardrobe. A straightforward silhouette, a soft cowl neck, vents on either side for easy movement and drape—its style is simply classic. It’s the fabric that makes Blond striking. By alternating needle sizes throughout, the knit fabric gains a touch of sheerness, a touch of texture. Beautiful!

Blond is knit holding one strand of Rowan Softyak DK and one strand of Kidsilk Haze together throughout. Softyak DK is a DK-weight blend of cool cotton, cloud-soft yak fiber, and a bit of nylon. Paired with the mohair fuzz of Kidsilk Haze, Softyak DK’s springy, drapey fabric gains a downy, glowing halo—just right for this cozy pullover.

KNITTER'S NOTES
You'll be making the side vents when you start the back and front of this garment.

While on the smaller needle, purposely make the "Loop" (the strand you pick up between the stitches)quite loose by holding it at the wrong side of work. This will keep the right edge from getting too tight compared to the side knitted with the larger needle.
