Hand Knitting Patterns
The soft, drapey Cowl neckline of this pullover reminds me of the ebb and flow of the ocean currents at Acadia National Park in Maine, which I visited when I was in high school. The greens and blues in the yarn echo the colors of the ocean and tidal pools. It has lovely curves and deep ribbing at the hips and sleeve cuffs. If substituting another yarn, make sure it’s a yarn that drapes well, and that isn’t stiff.
This pullover is worked from the top down, beginning at the back shoulders. The back is worked to the armholes, then placed on hold while the front is picked up from the back shoulders and worked to the armholes. Then the back and front are joined and the body is worked to the bottom edge, with waist and hip shaping. The sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuffs, with short-row shaping to shape the sleeve caps.
