Finally…FINALLY. I’ve been wrestling with the pattern for some weeks now, not because of the actual pattern itself, but making up the pdf – turns out Acrobat is a handy, handy program. Many thanks to some almost-family for use of said program.
BUTTON ME UP PULLOVER
Button Me Up! is a fun, fast and easy pullover knit seamlessly in the round from the bottom up with raglan sleeves. The functional buttoned yoke is knit flat, with button bands picked up and finished afterwards. Just the thing to show off unique or vintage buttons – the ones on this sweater were pulled from a thrifted vest!
The yarn used in the pattern, Cascade Pastaza, is incredibly warm and quite durable. But if you don’t require such insulation, feel free to substitute any chunky-weight wool, wool blend, or cotton!
