For dreamers and designers, a pullover that’s equal parts strong and sensitive. This masculine version of the popular Oshima pattern (designed for women in the BT Fall 13 collection) uses double-stranded Loft to create a cozy brioche yoke. Decreases for the arm holes and neck opening are set in from the edges to form echoing curves like rake lines in a zen garden. The sweater is knit in the round from hem and cuffs to underarm, then the yoke and sleeve caps are worked flat. The fronts extend over shoulders to seam to back, adding architectural interest to the rear view as well. Fine details like fashioned decreases and tubular edges bespeak lasting quality.
Note that for Brioche Stitch, each elongated stitch in a column of knit stitches represents two rows: when you count these it will appear that 22 rows = 4″
Size A (for Stockinette Stitch Fabric):
Size B (for Brioche Stitch Fabric):
Size C (for Ribbing):
Size D (optional; for Tubular Cast On only):
*32″ circular needle can be used instead of DPNs and/or 16″ circular needle if using the Magic Loop method for working small circumferences in the round (i.e. Sleeves).
Note: If you have adjusted the needle size to obtain the correct gauge, it may or may not be necessary to make a matching adjustment to the needle size used for Tubular Cast On due to variance in individual work. You may wish to test your chosen cast-on method on your swatch.
