Wharf Street Pullover

It’s been a minute since I shared a knit piece and that’s a shame! Some recent projects have not turned out as planned (ahem, Caroline’s Christmas sweater fits me) and some, like this sweater, needed to be kept under wraps for a bit because they were gifts! I made this sweater for my Josie. She’s the easiest ever to shop and make for because we like all the same things! If I would love it, she would love it, and that’s how I chose this sweater for her.

After drooling over every single design in Texture by Hannah Fettig for almost an entire year, I finally made something from it! As with all Hannah Fettig patterns I have made before, the instructions were perfectly clear and the piece is beautifully constructed. I adore the honeycomb cable look and the raglan yoke in particular.

If I knit this sweater again (and I hope to, for myself next time!) I would go a size down. Though it isn’t huge to the point of looking bad, it is baggier than it should be.

Are you knitting anything right now? What’s next on your to-make list?

My Notes

Fit

I made the 36.25 inch chest circumference and it had a bit more ease than I was hoping for. I may knit the same circumference next time but shorten the body and sleeves (a recurring theme for me, a shortie.)

Pattern

Knit from the bottom up with a simple ribbed edge, honeycomb cables, and a raglan yoke, this pattern is clear and yields a perfect, professional looking product. Take that, J.Crew!

Difficulty

You need some knitting experience for sure, but Hannah’s patterns are always clear and easy to follow. I wouldn’t recommend making this as your first sweater pattern…but then again, the first sweater I ever knit on my own was a very complex cabled sweater (also by Hannah). So, what do I know?
