70% Abruzzese wool

Light Fingering (uk 4 ply) weight with 50g – 300m


Pappus pullover is a surprisingly quick project by Midori Hirose , that is knitted  at a very loose gauge with big size needles, constructed in completely seamless way without cutting the yarn. The combination of thin yarn and big needle gives light, transparent and airy texture to this pullover.

Upper body, puff sleeves and cuffs are worked flat as a rectangular piece, started with a provisional cast on at the back, knitted up to the back neck, bound off for back neck and then casted on again for the front neck, knitted down to the front, then folded in. The sleeves are seamed together with 3 needle bind off on each side, and lower body is worked in the round down to the bottom hem.


Our version is knitted in Aestiva, to make a garment that would be perfect for summer evenings or in mid season as a layer  under a jacket or such.



This pattern has one size for body with Elbow length sleeves or 3/4 sleeves. 

You can adjust the size very easily. (around arm, around bust, body length, sleeve length)
