Like the rest of the country, we here at My Sister Knits are enveloped in the dog days of summer. The mere thought of wooly sweaters makes us sweat even harder … but somehow, we just can’t help ourselves. There are so many great patterns out there that we just itch for something amazing to grow off our needles. With that in mind, we’re showing you the Cobblestone Pullover.
This simple-to-knit men’s sweater is knit in the round from the bottom up. It uses simple short row shaping on the yoke, and the sleeves stitches are put on hold and then knit from the shoulder down after finishing the neck. This sample is knit with less than three skeins of Cascade Yarns Eco+, but it would be even warmer and squooshier (technical term) in the new Cascade Eco Cloud.
Jared Flood at Brooklyn Tweed is often inspired by Elizabeth Zimmermann and her simple garter stitch patterns and accents. You can really see that inspiration in this sweater. If you’re on Ravelry, check out other people’s projects: plenty of women have knit this sweater with a few alterations, and it’s just as flattering on a lady as it is on a man.
