Double Checker Pullover
  1 customer review


The bold checkered fabric in this statement pullover comes from a double blend—not only are weaving and knitting techniques combined, it’s holding two yarns together that creates the color effect. A fingering weight tweed yarn is worked in wide intarsia vertical stripes, while at the same time a strand of mohair is worked in horizontal stripes which lends coziness as well as clever color variation.

The silhouette is boxy without being sloppy with neat set-in sleeves and Garter Stitch edgings. Construction is flat and in pieces: the front and back are worked bottom up and seamed, then sleeves are worked top-down to ensure the best match to the body stripes. Short rows at the shoulders make a neat finish. The colorwork pattern is both written and charted.

Sample is 38"; model is 32" bust.
