Classic Elite Yarns



Issue 459 • Telluride Simple Pullover

Four Color Shawl

I love working cables (and lace and colorwork), but sometimes Stockinette stitch is all I want to knit. The simple rhythm of a working a plain stitch is meditative and hypnotic – perfect for the slower pace of a hot summer day.

Designed by Tonia Barry, this pullover is easy to knit, has no seams, and gets the proportions and simple details just right. The lower body is worked in one piece to the underarms, then divided for working the back and front separately to the shoulders. Stitches for each sleeve are picked up around the armhole opening and worked from the top down. The edges roll perfectly worked on a smaller needle.
