The Dorchester Pullover marries simple, classic shapes with delicate details in a way that makes it truly special. Though the bulk of the sweater is worked simply in garter and stockinette stitch from the bottom up, the front panel is knitted using a modular technique; scallops are interconnected with picked-up stitches.

Needles Size 6 (4 mm): 16” and 32” circular (cir) and set of double-pointed (dpn). Adjust needle size if necessary to obtain the correct gauge.
