It’s a bottom-up, seamless raglan pullover that’s front-back reversible, color stranded for added warmth, and would make a great gift for any outdoorsy types on your knit-list.
The colorwork is simple and cheery in two oranges that, when combined, look like the sparks of a crackling campfire –great for spotting the wearer in a First Night snowstorm or a crowd of after-holiday-sale shoppers! And since it’s front-back reversible, you can just throw it on and go — great for giving to a non-knitter who has trouble navigating a tagless neckline.
The big gauge of Berkshire Bulky makes it a quick knit that they’ll never know was made at the last minute. Its wool/alpaca fiber content make it soft and warm with just a hint of a fibery halo.
So whether you’re just now thinking of a sweater to give for the holidays or you’re hankering to keep it for yourself, do consider the can-do Campfire Pullover. It’s one of my favorite designs so far, being simple and functional, but also stands out with its color combination. It also happens to go well with my standard wardrobe of jeans and gray t-shirts – definitely a sweater I’d make and wear, myself.
