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.
