Named for the suggestion that it has been dipped in a great, big pot of paint, our year-round Paint Pail Pullover appeals to our love of color and color blocking (not to mention our affinity for alliteration)!

Knit from the bottom up, it all begins with our favorite soft rolled hem and makes its way up to a raglan yoke and saddle shoulder. The beauty lies not only in the finished sweater but in the little amount of finishing work you need to finish it!
