The Garter Stitch Pullover is a wonderful choice for your first knitted sweater! We think it’s perfect for beginners and more experienced knitters alike. This simply classy design from our Fall/Winter Style Guide has minimal shaping and is worked in pieces.
We love the tonal depth of this yarn! Wool-Ease® Tonal in Smoke looks like an exotic hand-dyed yarn, and the tone-on-tone silvery grey almost shimmers. The yarn gives character and textural interest to the simple garter stitch. Plus it’s easy-care and super soft, just as you’ve come to expect from the Wool-Ease® family of tried and true classic yarns.
This pullover is knit at a slightly loose gauge. This makes for a soft and drapey fabric, and a quicker knit too! The stretchiness of the fabric means the garment will mold to your body, even with the sweater’s boxy shape. The pullover is shown in a classical fit in these photos. Or, you could knit a larger size if you wanted a more oversized sweater.
Lots of wearing options with this sweater! The wide neck would look great with your favorite scarf or cowl. You can wear the sweater slightly off of one shoulder if you like, as shown here.
Our team designed the sleeves to be extra-long for that cozy factor. You can fold the sleeve edge up into a cuff, or make a thumbhole and have the sleeves warm your hands a bit too! Just leave a small opening for your thumb when seaming. The sleeve length is easily adjustable if you prefer a different look.
