Description

For this striking pullover, designer Lena Zharichenko looked to Blackfoot clothing, which was featured on Candice's mood board for the issue, where ever detail held a significant meaning.

In honour of the adornments she saw, Bunkhouse was created with a geometric bobble design along the neckline and sleeves. This sweater is not one for beginners, but we think for the adventurous or ambitious maker the reward of wearing it will be more than worth any challenge involved.

Recommended Needle Size: US 6-4mm, and US 7-4.5mm

Originally designed out of Oh Dang! held double in Ranch Romance. FDF also made a version out of Bear Paw DK in Bitterroot. If you prefer non-superwash you can substitute Pishkun held single.

Pattern can be found in Issue 46 of Pom Pom Quarterly Magazine.

Tips!: This is knit from the top down, so be sure to try your sweater as you go for the perfect fit!

Bunkhouse is a modified dropped shoulder worked semalessly from the top down, with bobbles framing the base of teh collar and top of the sleeves. the 2x2 ribbed collar is worked to double the finisehd height, then folded to create a sturdy neckline. The sleeves and neckline shaping are worked flat. The Turkish cast-on method is used to cast on stitches for each sleeve, and German short rows are used to shape the front neck, back neck, and sleeve curves. Sleeves are joined using a three-needle cast-off, and the body is worked in the round to the slightly tapered ribbed hem. Finally, cuffs are added to each sleeve.

This pattern uses five markers. Four markers are lavelled 1-4 and are referred to as "marker #1", "marker #2", etc. throughout. The remaining marker is unnumbered, and referred to simply as "marker".
