I’m so excited! I finally get to share one of the patterns I’ve been working on! And it might be my absolute favorite!
Here it is, the Ballard Pullover:
The Ballard Pullover is inspired by (ahem) Ballard, my favorite neighborhood in Seattle. Ballard was historically a very working-class neighborhood, full of Scandinavian fishermen and boat hands. But, in the last couple years it has become the newest cool neighborhood in Seattle to find fantastic tapas, a vintage records, and hand-made jewelry. I think this pullover captures that feeling: traditional comfort with a slightly modern edge. It’s an updated version of the traditional Fisherman’s Sweater.
Knit seamlessly from the bottom up, the sweater is knit in a fantastic squishy texture that looks and feels great, and make this sweater ultra-warm and cozy. Generous panels of cabling on the underarms and sides flow smoothly into the raglan shaping of the shoulders.
This quickly became my favorite sweater (which killed me, because I couldn’t show it to you guys for months!), and I’m sure it will become yours, too!

So beautiful! Congrats!
