Audrey

C$9.00Price

Audrey is drop shoulder pullover.  The body is knit in Stockinette at a tight gauge while the deep sleeves have all the wow factor with chunky seed stitch cables.  The pattern offers instructions for two different types of sleeves: ballon style sleeves (shown here in teal, first four pictures) or wide 3/4 sleeves (shown here in amber with a cropped body, pictures five to eight). 

 

The pullover is knit top-down and seamlessly.  The back is knit flat first to the underarm.  Stitches are picked up at the shoulder seams to knit the front flat to the underarm.  The stitches are then joined to knit the body in the round.  Stitches are picked up to knit the sleeves, top-down, in the round.  There are charts and written instructions for the cables.  Finally, stitches are picked up to knit the collar in the round.  The collar is folded and sewn on the inside.

 

Audrey is designed in collaboration with Kettle Yarn Co., and you can find the yarn and kits for the design on Linda's website, www.kettleyarnco.co.uk.
