Boathouse Pullover

$9.00

Loosely inspired by the tradition of Bohus knitting, Boathouse is a graphic, minimalist foray into simple colorwork. Knit top-down, in the round, and with raglan shaping, Boathouse is a classic pullover with eye-catching details in tonal colors. Like the Bohus tradition that inspired it, this sweater features stockinette stitch with strategic purls to enhance the color changes.

30 (34, 36, 38, 40, 44, 46, 50, 52, 54, 56, 58, 60) in/765 (865, 91.50, 96.55, 1001.5, 1102, 1175, 1257, 1320, 1357, 1402, 1475, 1520) cm

Main Color (sample main color is Harrisville Flywheel in Birch Bark): 1020 (1081, 1146, 1215, 1288, 1365, 1447, 1534, 1595, 1659, 1725, 1794, 1866) yards/ 932 (988, 1048, 1110, 1177, 1248, 1323, 1402, 1458, 1516, 1577, 1640, 1706) meters

Contrast Colors: You will need approximately 25 g (or between 50-80 yards) of 6 contrast colors. I recommend choosing colors in tonal pairs. For example: If your main color is a light shade, you might choose the following pairs: dark blue/medium blue, dark red/coral, dark grey/medium grey. It is not necessary that your contrast colors be exactly the same base as your main color. I used Kelbourne Scout for my contrast colors.
