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.
