Backstage Pass: a simple, size inclusive sweater with great details. Its cropped shape and shallow mock turtleneck make it the perfect piece to throw on when you need a pullover that works with your ‘going to the show’ outfit.

The pattern includes illustrated tutorials for working a tubular cast on and German Short Rows, and a link to a tutorial for the sewn tubular bind off used in the neck. To make Backstage Pass, you will need to know how to knit, purl, work increases and decreases, and seam. Designed in collaboration with Camp Color.
