Issue 3 Pattern: Dos Corientes

Dos Corrientes Pullover

                               

Designed by Kate Barrios

Dos Corrientes means "two currents", after the side-by-side cables that split midway up this slightly cropped pullover, carrying on up to the shoulders. The squishy fisherman's rib creates a warm and cosy pullover, and the boxy cut works well for a variety of body types.

The Dos Corrientes Pullover is worked in four pieces back, front and two sleeves) flat and bottom up. The front features a Fisherman’s Rib cable formed by two opposing basic ropes in the bottom, and later are slowly separated.

All pieces are worked in Fisherman’s Rib stitch. Both front and back have a dropped shoulder classic silhouette, with a length reaching a couple of inches below the waist for a cropped look. The mock turtle neck is created by binding off the shoulders and continue working the neck in the front and back. The sleeves are worked straight.

Once all pieces are knitted, the front and back are seamed by the shoulders and neck. Then the sleeves are joined, and finally the sides and sleeves are seamed. To Bind Off the neck of both front and back, use the Yarnover Bind Off technique.
