Product description

For a beautifully wintry mood, look no further than the Florin Pullover, with its deep, fold-over turtleneck and colorwork bands of snowflakes under magnifying glass. Compound raglan and round-yoke shaping ensures comfortable fit and a subtle design effect at the yoke. However, Florin’s most brilliant feature is its reversibility; this piece is designed to be knit with the smooth stockinette side facing, but with careful finishing, you can proudly pull it on with the stranded side taking the reins for a visually muted, but distinctly textural feel.

The body and sleeves of this pullover are worked circularly from the bottom up, then joined to work the yoke in one piece. The yoke is shaped using a combination of raglan decreases, round-yoke decreases, and Short Rows: German Method. The underarms are joined using Kitchener Stitch. With careful finishing, the pullover may be worn with the stranded side out, as photographed. The colorwork motif is worked from charts only.
