Paint Pail Pullover Pattern


Named for the suggestion that it has been dipped in a great, big pot of paint, our year-round Paint Pail Pullover all begins at the bottom with our favorite soft rolled hem and makes its way up to a raglan yoke that turns into a saddle shoulder. Stitched up in our Linen Quill, a mix of fine highland wool, alpaca, and linen, the Paint Pail Pullover is lightweight and comfortable with a raw and natural beauty. And you have over 30 gorgeous colors to play with, so try surprising pairings that push you beyond your color comfort zone! Please click Product Details, above, for more information about materials, gauge, and sizes.
