PATTERN DETAILS

Bosco is an oversized, loose boxy pullover knit seamlessly using chunky/bulky-weight yarn knit up on a needle size larger than you typically would to create a more loose fabric. It's knit in one piece from the bottom to the underarms, then the front and back are worked separately. Shoulders are shaped using short rows and seamed together using the 3 Needle Bind-Off Technique. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armholes and worked in the round to the cuff, and neck stitches are also picked up and worked in the round to create the cowl neck. Instructions are very detailed so even if you have never done short rows or a 3 Needle Bind-Off before this would be a great introduction to them.

I’m Elizabeth Smith and designing knitting patterns is my passion. I strive to create simple, modern designs and write patterns for them that are easy to follow and fun to knit. Most of my patterns are seamless and many are knit from the top-down. They are written with the beginner knitter in mind, providing lots of detailed instructions. I provide pattern support for all my designs so feel free to get in touch with me if you have any questions-I love to help and make sure my customers enjoy the knitting process (not to mention the finished piece!)
