Interweave Knits Spring 2015: Eastbound Sweater

The spring issue of Interweave Knits was released this past week featuring transitional garments preparing us for the indecisive weather of spring. From subtle lace cardigans and pullovers to spring accessories, this issue of Interweave Knits includes the Eastbound Sweater from Courtney Kelley featuring The Fibre Co. Organik in Night Sky. 

Combining the traditional gansey patterning with the modern shape of a relaxed dolman, the Eastbound Sweater is a great addition to any wardrobe. 

One of my favorite details about the Eastbound Sweater is the armhole gusset that begins right after the hem is completed. Who said sleeve shaping can’t be a design element. 

SIZES: 38 (41, 45, 48, 55)” waist circumference. Sweater shown measures 38″, modeled with 4.5″ of positive ease. 
YARN: The Fibre Co. Organik (70% merino wool, 15% baby alpaca, 15% silk; 98 yds/50 gm skein): night sky, 10 (11, 13, 15, 18) skeins.
