Funnel Neck Pullover Using Rowan Felted Tweed
Akin to a favorite sweatshirt, but a little more refined, this boxy pullover slips easily over layers or wears perfectly on its own. We love it all week long, all year round! Three-quarter length sleeves on this tweedy version stay comfortably out of the way.
We’ve knit the Funnel Neck Pullover in Rowan Felted Tweed—one of our absolute favorite yarns. This fiber is on the finer side of DK-weight and blends merino wool with alpaca and viscose. As a result, it has softness and spring, drape and luster—and so many beautiful color options!

We love the versatility of this garment. Play with different yarns or yarn combinations to create a fabric you’ll love. 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!
