Vogue Knitting Pattern. Boat-Neck pullover #tbt

I was casually browsing the Vogueknitting.com when I saw this free pattern. The basic shape, beautiful stitch pattern, very versatile design by Norah Gaughan. This pattern turned out to be the only one that I repeated several times, with different yarn and different size variations. I knitted the last one with the local Trigo yarn, 100% natural, very soft and light cotton. I fell in love with the color. The sweater looks like it’s been dipped into the dark honey.

 I made some modifications to the pattern. The neckline and the hem seemed a little “messy” to me in the original pattern, so I trimmed them with the basic 2*2 rib.

The perfect combination of the stitch pattern and the yarn made the sweater so light that I almost don’t feel it on my skin, it’s like a spider web. At the same time it’s incredibly soft and cozy.

I will definitely knit this pattern again. Thank you, Vogue Knitting!

  1. Dear Aline,
    I want to buy yarn for this pattern as a Xmas gift. Would like to know the different yarns you have used. I have not knitted for years so don’t have knowledge of high quality yarns and must order online. Thank you for your help.

    • Hi, Donna! I’ve used the local Mexican 100% cotton yarn. This version was knit with natural cotton (knitting weight: FINE), which made the sweater super soft and light. What I love about this project is that it’s so versatile and you can be very flexible with your choice of yarn. Basically you can buy any mercerized cotton. Such as “Schachenmayr Egypto Cotton” or “Cascade Yarns Ultra Pima Fine”, or cotton/silk blend “Valley Yarns Prescott” you can look it up at WEBS (yarn.com). I hope it helped! Good luck! If you still have some doubts you can always write me an email (alina@giftofknitting.com) I’ll be happy to help!
