Pattern - Easy Relaxed Pullover
This is a printed pattern to be mailed or picked up.
This quick-to-knit sweater is airy and lightweight. Loose ribbing at the hem and cuffs gives it a lived-in look. Holding three strands of lace-weight yarn together—two mohair, one smooth—we chose high contrast colors for a smudgy marl. Closer tones with render a soft, pretty wash of color for a more tonal look.
