Product Details

With several neck options, Valley Yarns B1 Basic Pullover with dropped shoulders is hugely versatile and a fantastic way to experiment with different yarns. This pattern is knit in pieces, bottom-up.

Finished Measurements: 36 (40, 44, 48, 52)” chest
Yarn Requirements:
     DK Weight – Approximate 1200 (1400, 1600, 1800, 2000) yards
     Worsted Weight – Approximately 1000 (1200, 1400, 1600, 1800) yards
     Bulky Weight – Approximately 800 (900, 1000, 1100, 1200) yards
Needles: In a size that gives you the desired gauge and needles a size or two smaller for the ribbing, also 16” circular in the smaller size for the neck ribbing.
Gauge: It’s especially important to make a gauge swatch for this pattern. Knit a large swatch (4” - 6” square) at the gauge you’d prefer for the yarn. Most yarn has a recommended gauge on its tag, which is a useful guideline. Wash and block the swatch the same way you’ll wash the sweater. Measure how many stitches and rows you have in 4” (this helps accommodate for an uneven gauge), then divide by 4 to figure out how many stitches and rows you have per inch. 
 In order to knit at any gauge, directions are given in inches instead of a stitch count. So if the directions say to cast on 20” worth of stitches for your size, and your gauge is 4 sts to the inch, you’ll cast on 80 sts.
