Not top-down nor bottom-up, our End To End Pullover is knit side-to-side in rows of sweet and simple garter stitch… A classic look but a fun construction!
Beginning at the end of the left sleeve, you knit the sleeve; cast on more stitches for the shoulder and body, knit that; then bind off some stitches and knit the right sleeve down to its end. Do the same for the back side, sew it all together with pretty inside-out seams, and ta da!
For the End To End Pullover we used our much-loved Linen Quill, a distinctive blend of fine highland wool, alpaca, and linen. It’s a wonderful three-season weight, and we just added 16 new colors to the collection, including this deep, watery, and gorgeous Green Turquoise. Pick the same or whatever’s your favorite, cast on for one end, and enjoy the journey to the other!
