Stitch Sampler Pullover

I have a pattern in the Fall 2016 issue of Vogue Knitting and it’s been receiving a lot of attention. The Stitch Sampler Pullover is a relaxed, drop shoulder pullover with a modern feel to it. It has 3/4 sleeves and a wide neck and is worked in fingering weight yarn at a loose gauge for a comfortable drape.

The yarn is Ancient Arts 100% Superwash Merino and it’s just lovely to work with. Caroline over at Ancient Arts tells me that this is the best reception they’ve received on a design in Vogue Knitting using one of her yarns. She knows knitters are ordering it specifically for this pattern because they’re even want the same colour, Forever in Blue Jeans!

What I love about this partnership is that it’s a Canadian yarn (that’s right, milled in Canada), hand dyed by a Canadian dyer and designed by a Canadian designer. Canada for the win!

I think the design is so successful because it’s completely wearable and easy to pair with jeans, dress slacks, or a skirt.
