Designer Feature: Angelina Pullover by Mary Anne Benedetto

I feel as if every time I sit down to write something about the latest Interweave issue, I sound like a broken record, so I’m just going to cut to the chase: Fall 2017 is fantastic and I cannot wait for sweater weather.

Mary Anne Benedetto designed a pullover for the magazine in The Fibre Co. Cumbria that effortlessly combines classic details with simple construction.

From the issue:

“This top-down pullover is worked in the round; the circular yoke features wishbone-shaped cables that increase in size to accommodate the yoke shaping. The sweater also features a curved hem and bell-like three-quarter sleeves.”

Yarn The Fibre Co. Cumbria: Dodd Wood, 6 (6, 7, 7, 8, 8) skeins.
Gauge 18 sts and 27 rnds = 4” in St st.
Needle Size 8 (5 mm): 16” and 32” circular. Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
Size s47 (49.75, 53, 55.5, 58.75, 61.25)” bust circumference. Pullover shown measures 47”; modeled with 14” of positive ease.

I love it in the rich chocolate brown of Dodd Wood, but could also see it work really well in one of the more unique bright colors such as Buttermere or Cowberry, or White Heather, the creamy natural released this fall!
