This top down oversized pullover can be knit with short or long sleeves and either cropped or hip length. The loose gauge of 4 sts =1″ over stockinette stitch allows for the use of anything from the recommended fingering wt +
Lace wt mohair to a worsted weight yarn. A well written pattern.
Here is a photo of a Love Note Pillover Julia knit already. She used a Fingering wt yarn + a lace wt Mohair Silk Blend. It is a super light weight garment.
Julia has decided to make two sweaters for this new KAL: one knit with the recommended fingering wt yarn + a mohair /silk blend. She is using Malabrigo Sock + Rowan Kid Silk Haze. For her other version she is going to work with a DK weight yarn: Joe Cole’s WTF Flockin’ DK worked alone. I think she is taking on 2 projects so that I will have a better chance of keeping up with her. (LOL)
I am knitting a toddler sized Love Note knit in a much heavier yarn: Cumulus.
I am using Cumulus for my Love Note Pullover. This pattern is written in sizes 0-6 months all the way up to 5XL. I will be attempting the size 1-2 for my granddaughter. My sweater will only take 2 hanks of Cumulus.
This is a fast knit folks! You can see I cheated and went ahead and started (but I did a swatch!). That’s the only way I can keep up with Julia!
We hope you will all join us. Take a look at the Ravelry Pattern Page for so many versions of this pullover.
