I bought, on sale, eight 250 gram hanks of Cascadeís Ecological Wool: Four natural
cream, and four in four other colors. The first thing I made from this yarn was
Altiplano, a sleeveless,
U-necked vest with a big handwarmer pocket.
The second was this roomy pullover sweater, with hems instead of ribbing, and a
comfortable easy-on, easy-off Newmarket collar. It has no pockets, and the pattern
stops short of the division for the armholes and neck, so even though more knitting
is involved, it is easier to accomplish than Altiplano. It would be easy to make
slit pockets just below the second repeat of the motif. This is also a fine sweater
to knit in a single color or a tweed, or using a main color with a contrast color
for hem, collar, and cuffs, if you want to make it once before making it with the
Womenís medium, menís small (approximately 42Ē around, as knit)
Womenís large, menís medium (approximately 45Ē around, as knit)
Menís large (approximately 48 inches around, as knit)
The Materials you'll need for this Knitting Project:
In Ecological Wool, it is knit on #9 circular needles for the body and
double-points for the arms, with the turned-under hems knit on needles two or
three sizes smaller.
Gauge is 3 3/4 stitches per inch, or 15 per 4 inches/10 cm, usually on #9
needles, or #8s. You will need long circular needles for the body, and double points
or smaller circulars for the arms.
You will also need markers, a crochet hook for picking up dropped stitches, and
a yarn needle, plus stitch holders or spare lengths of yarn.
