Donner - Patterns

Regular price $7.00 Sale

Designed by Elizabeth Doherty to fit with a bit of positive ease, this modern drop-shoulder pullover is the perfect multi-season garment.

Donner is worked from the top down in a simple slip-stitch ridge pattern. The shoulders are shaped with short rows, angling them downward for a better fit. Front and back are joined at the underarms and the body is worked in the round to the hem. Three-quarter length sleeves are picked up from the armholes and worked to the cuff in the round.

Yarn & Yardage
The pattern calls for fingering-weight yarn, and we like our Merino Bamboo - Fingering, Walkabout - Fingering, or Cotton Bamboo - Fingering yarns for this project.
