Cass Knits The Carrick Pullover

tweed carrickBack when I reviewed Tweed, I mentioned a few sweaters I would like to knit, and believe or don’t, the Carrick Pullover wasn’t among them. I’m not sure why, except that it is a fairly plain sweater, with no intricate shaping or design. Where other sweaters in the book say “ooooooooh”, this one only promises an “ahhh” and then only when you pull it on.

Nonetheless, given the fact that it was time to knit the Dublin Tweed, the gauge and yardage were right, and I am too stressed to follow anything more complicated than a three stitch pattern repeat, I am knitting it. Hold your collective breaths, I am knitting with bulky weight yarn. And, ya’ll, I am loving it.

Last night, I got to the point where it is time to shape the armholes. This morning, I ripped it back out to re-do it at a larger gauge, which will come much closer to replicating the texture of the sweater in the picture. It’s a very soothing knit, and very quick, too. And given that I hate a coat with a passion, and mostly refuse to wear one, I’m thinking this sweater may end up being my new winter BFF. Sorry, Ang.
