This boxy Textured Pullover was featured in Noro Magazine's Fall/Winter 2018 issue. Though we no longer have that issue for sale, we love this sweater so much we've turned it into a kit!
The coolly asymmetrical pattern of this pullover is achieved by knitting from two skeins of Noro's Kiri at the same time, one ball for each half, purposely started at different shades. The skeins are twisted at the center front and back to prevent holes. The main body is a textured knit/purl checkerboard pattern, with a five-stitch rib pattern at the side slits and 1x1 ribbing at the lower hem and sleeve cuffs. Side edges are increased from the armholes to achieve a drop-shoulder silhouette and relaxed, oversized fit.
Kit includes 3-5 skeins of Noro's Kiri (100g ea) and a downloadable PDF of the pattern FREE (a $6.00 value). For full yarn details, click the link above.

We love this single ply, marbled yarn for its depth of color and complex texture. It’s tonal, self-striping colors blend seamlessly and, due to a fair amount of dark gray in the mix, would look terrific worked into a men's sweater! Of course, it looks great on women too!!
