Easton

$8.00

My Easton pullover is inspired by my favorite sweater in the whole world. It's worked in one piece, and slightly (but not too much) dolman through the arms. It's got extra-deep ribbing and an extra-luscious cowl, and is made out of a super soft charcoal gray wool. (I used Shibui Knits Staccato and Shibui Knits Pebble held together for the sample, and the softness is unspeakable. In a good way.)

This traditional pattern is available in 12 sizes and a DK/light worsted gauge, for $8. Once you've purchased, your PDF will be available for immediate download.

Description

Easton is a nod to my very favorite sweater in the whole world – an old sales-bin find. It’s slightly (but not excessively) dolman through the arms, loosely-fit through the shoulders, with extra-deep ribbing and an extra-luscious cowl, out of a soft gray wool. It’s been looking shabbier and shabbier, and I’ve been wanting to design something inspired by it.

Since my beloved sweater is still wearable, I let my inspiration carry me a bit further afield: Easton features long sleeves and a longer body than the original. (I’ve kept the perfect gray, though.) The armholes are a little dolmaned, the sleeves feature an extra-long turned-over cuff for good snuggling, and it’s knit out of the most luscious yarn ever.

For materials, I chose Shibui Yarns Staccato and Pebble, held together. The fabric is fluid and warm and cozy and incredible. Here’s the breakdown on fiber content and quanitites: Shibui Knits Staccato [70% merino, 30% silk; 191 yds (175 m) per 50g hank] and Shibui Knits Pebble [48% recycled silk, 36% merino, 16% cashmere; 224 yds (205 m) per 25 g hank].

The sample is shown in color Fog. You’ll need 8 (8, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10, 11, 11, 12, 12, 12) hanks of Staccato and 7 (7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10, 11) hanks of Pebble, or approximately 1480 (1540, 1615, 1675, 1770, 1830, 1910, 1990, 2060, 2145, 2230, 2290) yards / 1355 (1410, 1480, 1535, 1620, 1675, 1750, 1820, 1885, 1960, 2040, 2095) m of a DK or light worsted yarn.

Sizing

36¼ (38½, 40, 42¼, 44½, 46, 48½, 50¾, 52¼, 56, 60½, 64½)’’ / 92 (98, 101.5, 107.5, 113, 117, 123, 129, 132.5, 142, 153.5, 164) cm

I recommend wearing all-in-one sweaters like this with a bit of ease in the bust (or upper torso) to preserve the casual feel. I recommend at least 2’’ (5 cm), and I’m shown wearing the pullover with approximately 6’’ (12.5 cm) ease in the upper torso and a tiny amount of positive ease through the fullest part of my bust.

Gauge

21 sts and 32 rows = 4” (10 cm) in Stockinette stitch

Materials:

Shibui Knits Staccato and Shibui Knits Pebble, held together; shown in color Fog: 8 (8, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10, 11, 11, 12, 12, 12) hanks of Staccato and 7 (7, 8, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10, 10, 10, 11) hanks of Pebble

Construction:

Easton is worked in one piece from the front hem to the back hem, with sleeve stitches added via a series of increases and cast-ons, and removed via a corresponding series of bind-offs and decreases. The front neckline is shaped at the same time as the sleeves, so please read ahead once you get to that section. There’s slight back waist shaping to keep things from getting too boxy, and all trims are picked up and worked in the round after seaming.
