Finally, I get to share my striped pullover pattern with you!
I was originally inspired to knit this pullover because of my love for the comfortable fit of Palladio. Unlike the A-line shape of that pullover, I've designed the body of this garment to fit more like a boyfriend sweater. It's worn here with 4 inches of positive ease and no waist shaping. The neckline is slightly wider than a crew to give the pullover a more casual look and feel.
I chose YOTH yarns Big Sister for it's softness. If you haven't tried this yarn yet, you must! Because it's a DK weight it makes a perfect all season garment and the cashmere content means it can be worn against the skin as well as over layers. I also chose a length that works well with both jeans and shorts, and finished the hemline with a flattering split hem.
When I was designing and knitting Clarke, I was obsessed with The 100 and spent many nights binge watching episodes on Netflix while I completed the sample. I like to think the overall feel of this pullover was inspired loosely by the comfortable, well-worn clothing and neutral colours found on set. I chose to name the pullover after my favourite female lead in the show, Clarke -- a strong, independent thinker, who isn't afraid of taking risks.
This pullover would be equally wonderful in a solid colour. It's also a perfect introduction to stripes -- the colour combinations are endless! And the pattern includes two methods for creating jogless stripes!
