The Arquette Pullover knitting pattern turns heads with a fresh and modern wave motif swept across the perfectly-fitted yoked shoulders. The flattering silhouette features a boxy fit and balloon-sleeves. The sweater is punctuated with a few special details—popcorn texture integrated into the colorwork, an optional lateral Vikkel braid at the base of the collar, beautiful tubular bind-off edges, and a split hem—all of which come together to elevate the design.
The sweater is knitted seamlessly from the top-down, making it easy to try on and adjust the length as you go. The instructions for the pattern are full of helpful details, such as a coloring page, video/photo tutorials for special techniques and also feature an option to work a turtleneck or crew neck. The yoke motif is charted with helpful details that explain how to manage long floats.
This pattern is also available in my Payhip shop here.
