Lion Brand Color Clouds Winter Park Pullover

Stay warm and stylish whenever the temperature drops with this easy-to-knit pullover. It's the perfect snow day sweater!

Use a gauge of 7-1/2 sts + 12 rows (4") in Seed st to knit a pullover that measures 44 (50)" across the bust and 21-1/2 (23" in finished length not including collar. (These roughly correspond with XS/S and M/L.) When you match the gauge in a pattern, your project will be the size specified in the pattern and the materials specified in the pattern will be sufficient. The needle or hook size called for in the pattern is based on what the designer used, but it is not unusual for gauge to vary from person to person. If it takes you fewer stitches and rows to make your swatch, try using a smaller size hook or needles; if more stitches and rows, try a larger size hook or needles.

Project Instructions

  • 1
    The instructions are written for XS/S size. If changes are necessary for M/L size, the instructions will be written thus ( ). When only one number is given, it applies to all sizes. To complete the Pullover, you will need 9 (11) skeins of Smoky Grey yarn and 1 (2) skeins of Ice Storm Grey yarn.

    Notes:
    •Pullover is worked in 4 pieces: Front, Back and 2 Sleeves.
    •Pieces are worked back and forth in rows on a circular needle to accommodate the bulky yarn in Seed st and rib.
    •Collar is worked in the round from stitches picked up around the neck edge.
    •You may find it easier to use a thinner yarn to sew the Pullover together.
    •This pattern includes some knitter's lingo. When you see ‘–"12 sts"’ at the end of a sentence, this is the number of sts you will have after working that row. When you see 'as established' in the instructions, this means to continue in the indicated pattern st, lining up sts as in previous rows.
    •Our pattern includes diagrams (available from downloading the template) to help you visualize how the Pullover is made and put together. Take the time to review the diagrams before you start knitting. The Pullover is easy to make, but having the big picture will make it even easier!
