Royale pullover knitting pattern
Royale is a striking, vintage style pullover with a distinctive large collar and three-quarter length sleeves. It’s seamless and worked top down, making it easy to customize the body or sleeve length.
It’s a relaxing and easy knit throughout most of the pullover, but gets a little more intriguing when you get to the collar. The collar remains entirely seamless, through a clever technique to overlap the stitches at the front.
The pattern is clearly written and very detailed, and includes several customization tips, plus an alternate easier way to overlap the collar, if desired. It’s such a charming vintage sweater, you’ll have a hard time knitting just one!
