willow / Pam Allen

Willow adds the satisfaction of classic gansey knitting to the simple, oversized shape of this pullover. The cuffs and hem are in a broken rib, keeping the sleeves and body from pulling in. An abbreviated version of the gansey motifs is worked into the sleeves at the shoulders. Worked from the bottom up, there's a great mix of meditative knitting and subtle challenge in this soft, ultra-cozy piece.
