Champlain

Description

An easy to wear, unisex pullover in 9 sizes (XS to L and 1X to 5X) to work in the round from neck to hem—completely seamless! The colorwork yoke is a simple slip-stitch pattern set against a field of cozy textured rib with a vintage vibe. A bit of short-row yoke shaping ensures the pullover hangs straight, with a comfortable fit through the back, shoulders, and neck. Instructions include sleeve and body lengths for both women and men.
Substituting yarn and/or needles may result in an overall variation in size, drape, and yardage requirement.
