Fall is officially here. The start of fall in the Northern Hemisphere was couple weeks ago and what is the best way to celebrate than to knit up an oversized pullover? Creative Yarns is here with a weekly pattern suggestion.
Step one is to pick a nice pattern. Creative Yarns suggests Bibbe pullover by Meghan Kelly. It is an oversized dolman pullover worked in pieces from the bottom up. Increases are worked at the underarms to shape the sleeves. Short rows shape the shoulders. When working the front, the neck shaping is worked simultaneously with the short row shaping.
Step two is to pick a nice yarn. We decided to knit this beautiful pullover with Arranmore Light by The Fibre Company. It is woollen spun DK weight yarn. It is 80% merino wool, 10% cashmere and 10% sillk. Garments made with this yarn are light and warm at the same time.
