Riverine Pullover in Pom Pom


Remember how I’ve been doing a bit of secret knitting this year? Well, it wasn’t all for swaps! I have a new pattern in the summer issue of Pom Pom Quarterly, which is the cutest quarterly knitting magazine ever.


When I think of summer knitting, I think of patterns that are both fun to wear in warm weather and easy to work on while drinking sangria. I think I nailed it here because, with the help of some stitch markers, this sweater is incredibly simple to knit. The body is knit in the round, and all of the shaping happens in the stockinette section. The fronts and backs are separated and knit flat using a very easy to memorize lace pattern. The faux capped sleeves and slashed neckline mean that the sweater is basically made up out of rectangles, and the shoulders are joined using a three needle bind off so it’s totally seamless. Easy, right?


If the sleeve shape looks familiar to you, it could be because I used it for last summer’s knit and crocheted sweater. But it’s more likely that you love vintage clothing like I do and have seen it all over the place in late 40s and 50s tops and dresses.


This sample was knit to fit the model with the intended amount of ease, not me, but I still managed to squeeze in to snap these pictures before I sent the sample off to Pom Pom. I was sad to see it go, but it looks right at home with the other patterns in the issue.

  7. SO CUTE!! My friend said she’d teach me how to knit in the round, and now I think that needs to happen sooner rather than later. Pom Pom does in fact look like the cutest magazine ever. I’ll have to try and get my hands on the summer issue ๐Ÿ™‚

    1. Once you understand the concept, knitting in the round is actually easier than knitting flat. That’s why so many knitters love seamless patterns and slightly-more-difficult steeks!

  8. Wow thanks! i love the magazine and its affordable *dances for joy*. Also seems like great patterns i will use in the future! thanks for the info! i LOVE this pull over – i’m not sure if it would make me look too broad but i may try it ๐Ÿ™‚
