Product description

A distinctive brioche hem is split and lapped at the front of this A-line pullover for effortless layering. Suspender stripes of textured stitches and three-quarter-length sleeves balance the silhouette for a flattering effect. After the front and back hems are knit separately, the stitches are joined to work in the round to the underarms. The yoke and set-in sleeve caps are worked flat and then seamed, and the simple ribbed neckband is worked on stitches picked up after assembly. Knit Breaker in a cheerful bright hue like Long Johns to give your wardrobe a lift or choose a warm neutral like Nest for a mellow garment that will go with everything.

    CONSTRUCTION

    • The back and front hem ribbings are worked separately and then joined to work the body in the round to the underarms. The upper front and back are divided at the underarms and worked flat. The sleeves are worked circularly to the underarm, then the caps are worked flat. The neckband is picked up and worked circularly after partial garment assembly.

    • Sample shown in Almanac is size 36″ with 1″ ease on model

    GAUGE

    • 17 stitches & 28 rows = 4″ in stockinette stitch with Size A needle(s), after blocking
    • 15 stitches & 40 rows = 4″ in Brioche Stitch with Size B needle(s), after blocking
    • 7 stitches of decorative panel on body = 1½” wide


    Note that for Brioche Stitch, each elongated stitch in a column of knit stitches represents two rows; when you count these it will appear that 20 rows = 4″. 


    NEEDLES

    Size A (for Main Fabric)

    • One 32″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles (DPNs)* in size needed to obtain gauge listed
    • Suggested Size: 5 mm (US 8)


    Size B (for Ribbing)

    • One each 16″ and 32″ circular needle and one set of double-pointed needles*, one size smaller than Size A
    • Suggested Size: 4½ mm (US 7)


    *32″ circular needle can be used instead of DPNs if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e., Sleeves).
