Garter Eyelet Pullover

This sweater is a very easy one to knit, yet it’s so beautiful!  For new knitters, the eyelet pattern isn’t difficult at all – if you can purl two stitches together, you can do it!  For more experienced knitters, because of the bulky yarn and easy stitch pattern, it’s a very quick and satisfying project. Take it with you on a long weekend – you’ll be amazed at how much you get done!

This pullover is worked from the bottom up in pieces, then sewn together.
