Told You! & New Pattern Release: Spare Time Pullover

I told you I would be back soon! Today, I am releasing my Spare Time Pullover pattern. I am so happy to get this pattern out there! It’s been a long time coming. It’s aptly named because for me, that’s just what it was, a spare time project. Also, that is why it took so long to get out. I did the original numbers for it in October and knit the sample in November!

This all starts with my desire to be comfortable at all times. I wanted some ease, but too much ease. I wanted cozy, tea-sipping, comfort food eating…wait, I’m talking about a sweater right. This sweater was knit up in Madelinetosh Vintage. I really liked working with it. It knits up quickly and gorgeously.

SpareTime3I wanted something to wear at home, but wouldn’t be awful to wear to the store or a meeting with teachers or running errands in.  I also had an idea for a collar. I wanted it sort of like a shawl collar, but kind of bandanna like.

The sweater is worked from the bottom up in a combination of knitting in the round and flat knitting. The shoulders are joined using three needle bind off.

The sleeves are picked up and knit as is the collar.  There is very little seaming (just a little on the collar).

I hope you enjoyed this sneak peak at my third and final March pattern release! Thanks for stopping by! Remember, the NinjaKAL is still going on in my group until the end of the month. Hope to see you there!
