birch / Pam Allen

Luxuriously oversized, with a deep, cozy, round yoke, Birch is classic colorwork and comfort knitting at its best. Plus, this pullover is a cool hybrid of bottom-up and top-down knitting: The body is knitted from the bottom up, with stitches cast on provisionally for the sleeves, all the way to the neck, and the sleeves are picked up from the waste yarn and knitted down to the cuffs.
