if you’re on our mailing list, then you’ve been receiving many emails these last two weeks, each revealing a new pattern release from the Bare Naked Wools 2018 Ensemble collection.
and now it’s finally time to show you my contribution—deep dive, a refined, lightweight pullover in ten sizes to knit in better breakfast fingering or any of our bare naked wools fingering yarns. heck, you could even knit this in one of our heavier lace yarns, like chebris, for an airy, nearly-sheer, super-luxe version.
the oversized cables hugging each side and outlining the dramatic neckline are Sooo sexy—you just want to eat them up. the neckline cables diverge from a center front detail that gives the appearance of a deeply plunging neck, but the actual opening is quite modest and flattering even when worn without another layer underneath.
the cable love doesn’t stop there—those lovely serpentine ropes extend all the way around the shoulders and across the back to form a continuous chain along the back yoke. the texture is simply to die for—deeply sculpted, slinky, and beautifully defined.
the sweater body is constructed in round from hem to underarm, where it divides into front and back yokes. the sleeves are knit flat and have a fitted cap; they are seamed and stitched into the body after the yokes are sewn together.
i’ve knit my sample in the poppy seed shade of better breakfast fingering yarn—just three skeins needed for this small size and four skeins for the next three larger sizes; this yarn goes a loong way.
my friend barb has knit one for herself in the milk and honey shade, a beautifully soft, creamy color—check out her project page if you’re curious about knitting this in a summery shade!
i want to get another one on the needles very soon in stone soup fingering yarn—i’m eager to see the effect in a tweedy version. i have swatches that are making me drool over it already, mmm.
want to know more about this utterly wearable, all-season pullover? or ready to purchase a pattern or kit?
