The Fireside Pullover is fairly simple and straight forward in it's construction. There's no shaping through the body, basic tapered sleeve decreases and a straight funnel neck. The fun comes in with the great stitch pattern. But since it's broken up with a substantial amount of stockinette stitch, the sweater works up really quickly!
I designed this sweater to be the 'go to' sweater for the winter wardrobe. SO comfortable to wear, lovely softness and warmth from the wool yarn, and a classic shape that will work for weekend, workday, daytime, nighttime, anytime!
I need testers for sizes XS, S, M, L, XL finished bust size for these are: 32", 36", 40", 44" and 48". I am wearing it in the photos with 3" of positive ease.
Here are the particulars for the test:
