Getty pullover

Getty 1

The perfect lightweight spring pullover – such a cool stitch texture, and I love these two yarns double-stranded together :)

Pattern:  Getty (ShibuiKnits SS17) by Shellie Anderson

Yarn:  Shibui Knits Twig (46% linen / 42% recycled silk / 12% wool) – 4 skeins (190 yds/ea) in Ivory, and Shibui Knits Cima (70% superbaby alpaca / 30% fine merino) – 3 skeins (328 yds/ea) in Ivory

Needles:  US 8s and US 7s

Size:  Small (to fit bust 34.5″, finished dimensions 38.5″) – I couldn’t quite get gauge, even after going down a needle size, so I went down one sweater size.  The result = perfect fit!

Notes:  Yarn is knit double-stranded throughout.

Mods:  There was no finishing for the neckline, and I thought it looked a little odd, especially where the cast-off stitches showed, so I picked up stitches around and then immediately bound off, which gave it just a little more of a finished edge.
