Pittsfield Raglan Pullover #199
Pittsfield went through several design stages (and a few yoke reknits!) before I settled on the design shown here. I love how the movement of the simple lace on the front and back is beautifully balanced out by the stockinette sleeves. The body and sleeves of this pullover are worked in the round from the bottom up, then the pieces are joined at the armholes and the yoke is worked in the round to the beginning of the front neck shaping, after which the piece is worked back and forth in rows to the end.
The lace pattern is presented in both written and charted formats.
