Barn Door cabled pullover

Barn Door pullover 1

This is a really great cabled pullover pattern, and a perfect match for Plucky Scholar – one of my favorite sweater – and cabling – yarns!

Pattern:  Maritime by Amy Miller, published in Fall Back – a Plucky Knitter Collection

Yarn:  Plucky Scholar (75% merino, 25% cashmere) – 7 skeins (255 yds/ea) in Barn Door

Needles:  US 7s and US 6s (I dropped only one needle size for the ribbing, instead of the US 4s called for in the pattern)

Size:  44″

Although this size allows for 5-6″ of positive ease for me, it doesn’t really feel that oversize – instead it’s just a relaxed, comfy fit.  Also, I was worried that it would be too long in back – 18″ from hem to armhole – but the length looks great, and I really like the shorter length in the front and the vents on the sides.

  1. Wow this is a beautiful sweater and it looks great in Scholar. I knit a sweater out of Scholar and I wear it all the time.
