Hirst Pullover

Sweater Knitting PatternThe Hirst Pullover by Ruth Garcia-Alcantud is featured in Interweave Knits Fall 2016. The pattern can be purchased on its own or with the magazine.

The Hirst Pullover is a versatile piece that can be worn as part of a casual outfit or an elegant ensemble. Although originally envisioned as a “wear with jeans” pullover, the textures and silhouette in this garment make it striking with an A-line skirt or tailored pants.
