Bay Street Pullover

Collaborations, Free PatternsAlexandra Tavel2 Comments

August always has me itching for cooler months, and this year is no exception. I get so excited thinking about a chill in the air and layers of knitwear! For my latest collab with Lion Brand Yarn, I wanted to design something that would hold me over under the temperature starts to dip. The Bay Street Pullover is the perfect fix - worked up in 24/7 Cotton with an airy stitch, it's breezy enough for warm weather and provides a gentle lead into fall. 

When I design I try to infuse a feeling or a place into the piece. I had fishing villages and late summer boating trips on the mind when I was designing this beauty and now all I want to do is run off to a coastal town and go sailing. Can't you just picture it being worn on a boat with the wind blowing by or at an outdoor cafe at dusk with a tray full of oysters and a glass of rosé?!

Since most of my other pullover designs are more chunky and oversized, I opted for a long and lean silhouette with the Bay Street Pullover. I think it adds a bit of elegance and it's further accentuated with the vertical stitch pattern. I knew I wanted to create a fabric that had the look of ribbing to play off of the nautical inspiration, and I chose to use yarn overs to almost mimic a vertical drop stitch to give the fabric a nice open texture. 

Other design choices include side vents since the sweater is more fitted and a boat neck to further emphasize the seaside vibe. I'd consider this an easy level pattern, and the techniques involved are the knit and purl stitches, k2tog and k3tog, ssk, p2tog, yarn over, and the cable cast on. You can find the free pattern below or click here to purchase a printable, ad-free PDF. You can also purchase all that yarn you'll need in a kit from the Lion Brand site here.

MATERIALS:

5 (6, 8) skeins Lion Brand 24/7 Cotton in Charcoal or approx. 930yds/850m (1116yds/1020m, 1488yds/1360m) of another worsted weight, cat. 4 yarn  
Size US 10 (6mm) knitting needles, at least 12”/30cm long
Tapestry needle

FINISHED SIZE:

Width: 18”/46cm (XS/S), 21”/53cm (M/L), 24”/61cm (XL/XXL)
Length: 25.5”/65cm (XS/S), 26.25”/67cm (M/L), 27.5”/70cm (XL/XXL)

*Size XS/S is pictured.

GAUGE:

13.5 sts + 21 rows = 4”/10cm in pattern (after blocking)

ABBREVIATIONS:

*All Two of Wands are written in standard US terms*

CO – cast on
CCO – cable cast on
K – knit
K2tog – knit 2 together
K3tog – knit 3 together
P – purl
P2tog – purl 2 together
Rep – repeat
RS – right side
SSK – slip, slip, knit

PATTERN:

Note: Pattern is worked from the bottom up for back and front and from the top down for sleeves. Al sts are slipped purlwise. Pattern is written in 3 sizes: XS/S, M/L, XL/XXL.

BACK:

CO 62 (72, 82) sts.

Rows 1-10: *K 1, P 1, rep from * to end of row.

Row 11 (RS): Sl 1, *K2tog, YO, K 1, YO, SSK, rep from * to last st, K 1.

Row 12: Sl 1, P across row.

Rep rows 11 and 12 until work measures 18”/46cm long when stretched to the correct width measurement for the size you’re working. Note: Once blocked, the fabric will stretch width-wise and reduce the length, so the length of the work at this point may need to be longer in order to accommodate. Stretching the fabric to the post-blocked width measurement will give you the most accurate length measurement for now.

Armhole shaping:


Next row: CCO 6 and then working back across new sts, Sl 1, K2tog, YO, K 1, YO, SSK, K3tog, YO, K 1, YO, SSK, *K2tog, YO, K 1, YO, SSK, rep from * to last st, K 1. (67, 77, 87 sts)
