Fall is my favourite season of the year and I love to have a good selection of basic sweaters to keep off the chill. When designing this garment I wanted to combine all of the elements of a sweater that make me happiest. This meant including a cowl, pockets, and nice long sleeves. Although the silhouette is simple, the unusual sleeve cap shaping keeps things interesting, while the cosy brioche stitch pattern adds texture.

Pippin is knit bottom up, beginning with a folded hem. The A-line shaped body divides at the underarms, and the front and back are worked flat. Increases are made at the outside edges of the front and back to create a modified drop shoulder or dolman type of sleeve without adding too much bulk at the underarm. The shoulder stitches are then grafted together. The sleeves are worked downward from stitches picked up around the armholes. The split cowl is worked by picking up stitches around the neck. The pockets are seamed to the sweater after finishing and are therefore easy to leave off if you desire.
