Take a closer look!
The Fairwind pullover is my 2019 retreat design for our wonderful friend Kim Kaslow of the Woolen Rabbit. Kim is a thoroughly New England girl like myself, in love with our mountains and beaches and lakes - however chilly they might be. Our climate calls for sweaters just about any time of year, and here in the northeast we love a relaxed vibe that likes to dress up (just a little) every now and again. This pullover has sophisticated detailing, from the understated cable texture to a generous ballet neck to optional side slits created by simply avoiding seams on the bottom 6'' (12.5 cm) or so of your sweater.
I used Kim's Piper yarn in a DK gauge and an allover sparse cable pattern to make this design. I love the soft drape of this fabric.

I worked Fairwind in The Woolen Rabbit Piper DK, in the color "Tupelo Honey". In the Periodic Cable stitch pattern, I liked a gauge of 24.25 sts & 32.75 rows = 4’’ (10 cm); I used a size US 5 / 3.75 mm needles. At that gauge, you'll need around (6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 9, 9, 9, 10, 11, 11) hanks for a tunic-length a-line garment in approximate sizes 30 (32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 42, 44, 48, 52, 56, 60)’’ / 76 (81.5, 86.5, 91.5, 96.5, 101.5, 106.5, 112, 122, 132, 142, 152.5) cm cm.
