Cobblestone Pullover

I finaly finished the "Cobblestone Pullover" from Jared Flood, a great Elizabeth Zimmermann fan.

pattern: "Cobblestone Pullover" from Jared Flood, Interweave Knits Fall 07
yarn: Rowan Felted Tweed, SH147 dragon, little bit more than 9 skeins
needlesize: 4mm
size: 48", I knit the largest size to get this, since Felted Tweed is thinner than yarn used in the pattern
modifications: added 6 rows to neck edging
for: my husband

I was looking forward to post this pic since I started knitting. Cobblestone on cobblestone. I know, I´m easy to entertain. But best was the face of the workers of the house opposite of ours, seeing a lady running of her house to flash a sweater on the street!

  • It's beautiful, I love the colour.
    My house is called Cobblestones (not a cobblestone in sight!) and I would love to knit it if only for the name!

  • It looks wonderful! I'm still yarn shopping for my husband's cobblestone. The felted tweed is a great idea.

  • I admired this pattern when I first saw it in the magazine.
    I have a question.
    When the wearer lifts their arms, does the entire yoke lift with them?
    I ask because this was my experience some years ago, with a Fair Isle Yoke sweater.
