M.Patmos, a New York City-based clothing label, and Purl Soho share a commitment to fine craftsmanship, function, comfort, and elegance, and so, to reflect our mutual admiration, together we created this very special M.Patmos Crossover Crewneck Pattern!
To begin, Purl Soho chose one of our very favorite M. Patmos sweaters, one with timeless style and modern, unexpected details. Then, we translated it from a ready-to-wear sweater into a hand-knitting pattern. M.Patmos’s sweater is no longer for sale, but its design lives on here as a knitting adventure!
The M.Patmos Crossover Crewneck has the appearance of simplicity and the beauty of surprising moments: an asymmetrical hem, a crossover yoke, and subtle selvages and shaping. Not necessarily for beginners, this Pattern is full of the kind of details that more advanced knitters appreciate!
We knit this incredible sweater in our equally incredible Cashmere Merino Bloom. A beautiful blend of extra fine merino and soft cashmere, it is perfectly suited for such an exquisite knit!
