With the gray and white of a snow-topped mountain in the distance and the vibrant shades of the sun rising over its peak, Tayler Harris’s Sundance Pullover combines the feeling of a vintage ski sweater with a more modern approach to color and shape. For this simple knit you work the front and back separately, each with its own stripe pattern (to keep ’em guessing!), then after seaming the pieces together, you pick up and knit the sleeves and stand-up collar. Half fisherman’s rib is quicker and easier than brioche stitch but has all the same warmth and squishiness, a fantastic fit for this super cozy sweater! Tayler chose Linen Quill for her design because of its vibrant color palette and rustic quality. She was inspired by the mountains and the charm of an old ski town, but we have the colors for whatever inspires you!
