Road Crossing Pullover
by Snuffykin
Difficulty: Tangy

Once finished, the pullover is reversible. The Rev. St. side is more edgy looking. The St. side is more "afternoon tea" looking, but with interesting detail of exposed seams.

This is a close-fitting pullover knit in Reverse Stockinette in a fabulous ribbon yarn. The waist is fitted and the sleeves are modified lantern, which means they're almost as wide at the wrist as they are at the shoulder. There is a deep V in front - you can wear with a camisole or without (sexy!). On the back is an easy pattern in stockinette of crossing rectangles, inspired by a road crossing sign. The pattern is quite easy, but there is a tricky bit with the shoulders. Shoulders are short rowed for shaping, then front and back pieces grafted together for a seamless look. Also, the seaming for Rev. St. st is different than the usual mattress stitch in plain St. st.

Project: Geo Modern Throw

I've finished knitting my 9 squares for the a throw. Now all I have to do is wash them, block them, knit them together, crochet around them...and then I'll be done. Whew. Just bought some T-pins at LYS and I have Kookaburra soap on hand to wash with.
