Take a closer look!
I designed Wintry Mix several years ago as a cozy, comfortable canvas for a soft, tweedy yarn. Since then, I've seen versions in so many different lovely yarns that I built the design into CustomFit - so now, you can make your own Wintry Mix in whatever you like. It's a fairly simple pullover with garter stitch trims, and an unusual neck trim.
This design features an unusual wide collar/cowl blend that's formed by working the neck stitches on progressively larger needles, until quite a floppy fabric is achieved; bind off loosely and instead of a tall, snuggly cowl you'll get a gorgeous portrait collar. You will need needles in sizes one, two, and three needle sizes larger than your main needle size to make this neckline.
