Description

I love a good dressy pullover – hand-knits are lovely when they’re rustic, of course, but there’s something unexpected and special about a luxe hand-knit pullover. Beacon Hill is definitely luxe: It’s an elegant silhouette, with a wide boat neckline and gently ballooned sleeves. Trim edgings worked in woven herringbone stitch, with slit hems and smooth sleeve caps, keep this design fresh and wearable.

The Woolen Rabbit’s Lark yarn is a glorious fingering-weight blend of alpaca, silk, and cashmere with astonishing depth of color. Should you desire to use another yarn, please make sure that it produces a drapey fabric with good body at 7 stitches to the inch.
