Love of Knitting Fall 2016 / Allison Jane

Handsome!  It’s not often we get to show unisex garments being modelled by a man! The Wishbone Sweater is a fresh example of a pullover for the rugged yet classy* man or woman in your life. (*Feel free to substitute “cute yet nerdy”, “sweet yet saucy”, “kind yet hilarious”  etc, as you see fit).

Allison Jane designed a gorgeous sweater in Acadia in the color Sand.  It features wishbone cables up the front and rope cables at the sides for subtle interest.  The back and sleeves are reverse stockinette making this sweater both interesting and easy to knit.

Finished Size 39½ (42, 46, 49¼ , 54½ , 58)” chest circumference. Pullover measures 46”; modeled with 6” of positive ease.

Yarn: The Fibre Co Acadia (60% merino wool, 20% baby alpaca, 20% silk; 145 yd 132 m/1¾ oz 50 g): sand, 10 (10, 11, 12, 13, 14) skeins.
