Digital Download: Everyday Pullover

A top-down, seamless-yoke cap-sleeve sweater.

In those transitional months, a short-sleeved sweater is the perfect layering piece. It helps keep your core toasty, without overheating you. And for knitters, it is a great canvas for experimenting with colors and textures.

The kettle-dyed yarn used here provides a nice variation in color, while the seed stitch edgings and ribbed accents supply the texture.

It’s a simple knit, with no sewing together at the end, and no picking up stitches. Once it comes of your needles, you can pull it right over your head and wear it out and about with no extra fuss.

For those new to sweater knitting, this would be a nice place to start. The absence of sleeves simplifies the process quite a bit!

Required Skills

The project is geared towards motivated beginners.  If you have these skills:

  • Long-tail and backwards loop cast-ons
  • Knit and Purl
  • Increasing and decreasing
  • Basic bind-off

then you can do this.

And if you don’t have a few of those skills? The playlist below (originally assembled for the Everyday Cardigan pattern) can help you fill in the gaps.

Tools and Materials

  • 800 yards worsted-weight wool or wool blend, like Cascade 220
  • One US #7 (4.5mm) 16” and one 24″ or 32″ circular needle
  • yarn needle
  • scissors
  • stitch markers
