A NOTE FROM CAITLIN
The Painted Pullover is a top-down, seamless raglan mock-turtleneck sweater with a boxy, relaxed fit. The loose gauge gives this sweater lovely, flattering drape and is extremely comfortable to wear!
The shaping of this design is fairly simple, the interest comes from the painterly effect of the 3 colors used blending in and out, interspersed with occasional purl rounds for textural interest. Painted was designed specifically to highlight the textural qualities and stunning colors of Essence of Autumn’s Pearl Merino, a fingering weight slub yarn. This sweater would be beautiful in alternative yarns as well- I recommend looking with 3 highly variegated colors to make the most of the gentle blending effect, and of course swatch to make sure you can achieve gauge!
Sheryl and I are both wearing size 4 samples in our photos. Caitlin’s is shown with 18.75” of positive ease, and Sheryl’s is shown with 15.75” of positive ease. This design allows lots of freedom in choosing a size that best suits your style
The Kit is available in 4 colour combos, see YARN INFO for details.
