Blurb: TERRITORY is a cozy, stylish pullover with a pretty, easy slip-stitch colourwork pattern. It looks complex, but you’ll only be working with one colour at a time! The Frieze pattern is echoed on the cuffs, while the rest of the long set-in sleeves offset the patterned body with simple Stockinette. The pieces are worked flat from the bottom up, and seamed before adding the ribbed collar. I’ve used a surprising hot pink for the contrast colour on the back, for an update to a classically styled sweater. Shown in size 41″ with no ease.
I’ve loved this slip-stitch colourwork pattern for ages – it looks so complex, but it’s really very easy and fast to work. You only use 1 colour at a time – no stranding. For a bit of a switch-up on an otherwise straightforward pullover, I knit the back of the sweater with a super bright contrasting pink! I love pink and grey – well, okay, I love any colour with grey really. I think it would look fantastic with a striping/colour-changing yarn for the contrast.
The yarn I used, Cascade 220 Sport, is inexpensive and very nice to work with – pleasantly wooly, but not too scratchy. And it comes in tons of colours! I’ve had this sweater done since the spring (the end of the never-ending winter?) so I haven’t had a chance to wear it yet, but I think it’s going to go just great with my fall leggings and skirts. I hope you like it too!
