Leafable Pullover

Basic Skills Necessary:

  • increase
  • decrease
  • lace

Pattern Description:

The Leafable Pullover is a fun, easy pullover that looks similar to a cabled sweater. It is worked in the round with the sleeves joined later. The only seams left are under the arms and the sleeves unless worked on circular needles.

I dyed the yarn a teal color and found that Lion Brand Fisherman's wool is both an economical and fun way to try out dying your own yarn. For help on dying search the web as there are many ways to accomplish the task.

This sweater can also be knit in any type of worsted weight yarn.

Materials Needed:
Size 9 (5.5 mm) straight knitting needles and circular needles
29 inches
2 (3, 3, 4) Balls of Lion Brand Fisherman's Wool Worsted
Weight 465 yards 100% wool Dyed to Teal Blue
Darning Needle
Stitch Marker to indicate end of row.
