Julie Hoover’s Goode pullover is cool and breezy, flattering and beautiful, making it one of our favorite springtime knits. Originally knit in our Linen Quill, Goode is even more lightweight and springy in our brand new Cattail Silk!

In 100% silk, this Dolman-sleeved sweater has a gorgeous drape and a feather-light feel. It is soft and comfy against the skin, and it insulates perfectly against both spring’s chills and unexpectedly warm days.

Cattail Silk knits up at the Goode’s same gauge on the same needles so that using it is a no-brainer. The only thing to consider is that, since Cattail Silk’s skeins are over 600 yards, you’ll need fewer of them than you would the Linen Quill. Okay!
