Knit with Attitude
Yarn Kit – Tessellated Pullover by Andrea Mowry
Andrea has done it again – an easy to wear still stunning pullover – made in a highly addictive stitch pattern which will make this project fly off your needles. The simple slipped stitch is what creates this wonderful texture, depending on your choice of high contrasting or low contrasting colours you can completely change the look of the design. This comfy, drop-shoulder pullover is the perfect way to showcase this beautiful stitch in the colour combos of your dreams!
This sweater is worked from the bottom up. The body is worked in the round until the divide for the yoke. The remainder is worked flat, and the shoulders are finished using the 3 needle bind off. The sleeves are then picked up from the body and knit in the round down to the cuff.
For this sweater Andrea chose 3 different yarns to use in the colourwork! A solid for the main colour (A) and then one colour shifting yarn (B) and one fuzzy yarn (C) for the contrasting colours, to create a truly unique and engaging fabric.
We are drooling over the potential possibilities in combining the gorgeous shades of John Arbon's Yarnadelic Sport (Yarn A), the magical hand-dyed marl, entirely unique to RiverKnits, Chimera (Yarn B) and the glorious, voluptuous Black Elephant Suri Cloud or the equally lush Fyberspates Cumulus as our fuzzy fix (Yarn C). We gathered our favourite combos for you to choose from, your dream project included for sure!
Sizes 1 – 10 with finished chest circumference : 86 (98, 106.5, 115.5)(127.5, 136.5, 148.5)(157.5, 167, 176)cm / 33.75 (38.5, 42, 45.5)(50.25, 53.75, 58.5)(62, 65.75, 69.25)” including ca. 10 – 25.5cm / 4-10” of positive ease.
We've done the maths for you, so according to your size the Tessellated Pullover Yarn Kit contains all the yarn you need to make your very own sweater, and it can be bought with or without the pattern. In addition you'll need circular needles size 3.5mm / US4 80 - 100cm / 32-40” length, circular needles size 2.75mm/US2 80 - 100cm / 32-40” length, and preferred needles for small circumference knitting for armholes and collar. You'll also need 2 stitch markers, spare needle for three needle bind-off, stitch holders, a darning needle for weaving in your ends and an optional cable needle.
