Tavola takes the staple boxy pullover and adds to it the joy of color and texture. Its silhouette remains simple to provide an ample canvas for graphic “striping” that is both intriguing and satisfying to work. Alternating between two colors every other row while alternating between blocks of knits and purls across the rows creates a visual effect rather like brickwork. This motif is carried through the sleeves, while the hems, cuffs, and upper chest remain in a single color for a color blocked effect. Exposed seams at the shoulders complement the piece’s architectural flair. Choose either complementary or contrasting hues of Arbor for a one-of-a-kind garment to see you through the seasons.
The back and front of this pullover are worked flat, in pieces, from the bottom up. The neck and shoulders are shaped using Short Rows: German Method. The shoulders are joined using the Joinery Bind Off. Sleeves are then picked up from the armholes and worked flat to the cuffs. After seaming the sleeves and sides, the collar is picked up and worked circularly. The colorblock pattern may be worked either from charts or from written instructions.
