Hand dyed and hand painted yarn has been growing in popularity and since I have began to dye my own yarns I wanted to design a minimalist pattern that showed off the beauty of the colors!
This pattern is made so simply and quickly and shows the stitches and color variations beautifully. I designed it to have a wonderful drape and have the potential to hang ever so slightly off your shoulders to have the perfect effortless feeling.
This is a great pattern for beginner and experienced knitters alike. To begin, you will need to find the perfect yarn. I will post my first Etsy listing later this afternoon with this yarn, Kaleidoscope Blues, hand dyed by me! It is an extremely soft sport weight yarn perfect for knitting garments. Any other sport weight yarn you want to use would also look beautiful. I would choose a wool because the pattern really comes together at the end when you block the ribbed stitch open.
Because this pattern is made to be a loose fit boyfriend-style sweater, I have written this pattern as though it is OS. You can easily add length to the arms, width during cast on, or a further waist drop without changing the pattern. Because it is soaked and then blocked, you can easily shape this pullover to your desired size.
I hope you enjoy this pattern, let me know if you have any questions!
With love, Kaitlin
