The Kalorama Sweater was inspired by one of my favorite places in the world. It's a little canyon in the Santa Monica Mountains where my family camps most years for Thanksgiving. The canyon is filled with sycamore trees and has a little stream running through it, though by November it's usually just
a dry streambed. For the yoke of this sweater, I've drawn inspiration from the leaves from the trees and the pebbles from the streambed.

I’ve named the sweater after a street in town that runs all the way from just before the ocean up into the hills. It has the most glorious view of the ocean and every sunset. Along the street are some of Ventura’s prettiest Craftsman homes.

This sweater has a round yoke and is knit from the top down with a slightly cropped length that hits just at the natural waist. It has short sleeves, though you can easily modify the pattern to add long sleeves if you’d prefer that length. There are no seams for you to worry about. The bobbles are done using a crochet hook, but if you are not comfortable crocheting, then your preferred bobble construction technique will work just as well.

This pattern has been tech edited and test knit.
