The Porthole Pullover’s colorful yoke is inspired by that of the Porthole Cardigan baby sweater (also in my shop) and is deceptively simple to achieve. Through the use of self-striping yarn and strategically-placed slip stitches, even a beginner can knit this look.
This is a relaxed sweater. It’s a hang around the house on a chilly weekend kind of sweater. It’s meant to be roomy and comfortable, and that’s what you get if you work the pattern without any of the optional shaping. If, however, you like your knits to be more body-skimming, you’ll want to add the waist-shaping darts and work the fitted sleeve option.
Fixed 2016-11-10 in the Porthole Pullover Short Row Bust Shaping section:
The first two rows should read Short Row 1: k71 (82, 80, 91, 93, 103, 113, 113, 123)sts, w&t. Short Row 2: p58 (68, 56, 66, 60, 70, 80, 70, 80)sts, w&t.
This is a top down pattern which I have adapted to bottom up as I like to knit on the go and don't like a big piece of work. Not finished yet but experiments with the patterned section seemed easy and looked good.
