The Knitter - - News - Lana Jois

Carmel-bythe-Sea “TEX­TURED, OVER­SIZED,

com­fort­able, and vis­ually ap­peal­ing - this pullover is a ver­sa­tile wardrobe sta­ple that can be paired with her­ring­bone trousers and leg­gings alike,” says de­signer Lana Jois. The body is worked in the round to the un­der­arm, then the front and back are worked sep­a­rately back and forth. The sam­ple gar­ment is knit­ted in Sugar Bush Yarns’ aran-weight Bold, a Cana­dian yarn that is avail­able in the UK. A good al­ter­na­tive yarn would be Pa­tons Merino Ex­trafine Aran.
