  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    The Dustland Sweater is knit seamlessly from the top collar down to the bottom ribbing. This solid sweater works beautifully with DK or worsted weight yarn. Solid or heathered yarns like La Bien Aimée Corrie Worsted or West Wool Tandem accentuate the crisp stitch definition. Simple knit and purl stitches like moss stitch, diagonal ribbing, and broken rib are framed by garter stitch rows for an easy to knit pullover. Try on the sweater as you knit to customize the length and fit it to your proportions.

    Once you finish the Dustland Sweater, there are also other fun patterns to knit like the Dustland Hat, Shawl, or Mitts, so you can have an entire textured ensemble!

    Stitch gauge is most important, because the length is customizable. So, if you just knit a plain moss stitch swatch, that will be a reliable gauge swatch.
