Designer: Sarah Solomon

Ainsworth is an oversized drop shoulder pullover with a saddle. The sweater is worked flat in pieces from the bottom up. The silhouette is based on traditional Aran pullovers and is suitable for a range of body types. Choose your size based on the finished chest measurement and the recommended ease. The cable patterns are simple and easy to memorize, and carefully-planned selvedge stitches simplify sewing the sweater together. A V-neck and patterned saddle add subtle detail to the design, and the double collar provides an elegant finish.

NOTES

  • The body and sleeves are worked flat and seamed.
  • A 32" circular is suggested to accommodate the number of stitches in the body, but straight needles can be used for body and sleeves.
  • A 16" circular is required for working collar.
  • Maintain a 1-stitch stockinette selvedge throughout body and sleeves.
  • Schematic indicates measurements of garment pieces before assembly.
  • For best results, the designer recommends using the Sloped Bind Off method (see Special Techniques) for shaping the neck, armhole, and sleeve caps.
