Gwendy Reeder, aka mountainlovertoo on Ravelry, knitted the Prescott Pullover in a lovely light blue ColourMart Cashmere DK Piuma in size large to achieve medium for her daughter Rebecca. I love how stunning it looks on her! Gwendy took part in the Knit-A-Long for the Prescott Pullover back in 2018, but has recently finished the sweater and sent it from California to her daughter in Georgia. Gwendy is both a test knitter and one of my patrons, I am pleased to say!
The pullover was knitted using a 4.5 mm/US 7 and a 4 mm/US 6 needle to accommodate the different gauges in rib and stockinette stitch: 24 stitches and 32 rows measures 10 cm/4″ square.
Gwendy writes “Done! It’s a beautiful pattern. Although I’m in love with this yarn, I don’t think it’s the best choice for this sweater because it doesn’t bounce back, and the sweater has grown since I sewed it together.” In the end Rebecca likes it with quite a bit of ease, she told us in the “Finished Objects” thread in my Ravelry group. Gwendy also reveals, in a message to me, that both she and her daughter loves the sweater. Thank you ever so much Gwendy & Rebecca!
The Prescott Pullover emulates intricate iron- and stonework found on historic university buildings. This professional and sleek pullover features soft cabled bell sleeves, and the side ribbing gives it a body-hugging silhouette. The design is worked from the bottom up in pieces, and it is finished with a cozy turtleneck.
The pattern available in sizes XS to 2XL, with a bust circumference of 87.5 to 127 cm/34.5 to 50“ in English in my Ravelry Store and on LoveCrafts. It was first printed in the Interweave Knits, Fall 2018 magazine.
