Shortleaf


Pattern Information

Shortleaf
Designed by Rachel Brockman

The shortleaf pine is a species native to the eastern US. These trees abound in the Charlotte area, and especially in the area where this collection was photographed, so the name seemed a perfect fit for this sweater and its botanic-looking stitch patterns. The patterning along the upper body of this sweater looks just like a cluster of pine trees perched alongside a mountain range.

This sweater is knit flat in pieces. The shoulders are joined using the three-needle bind off method. The sleeves and sides of the sweater are seamed. The Twisted stitch pattern is in chart form only, though a written version of the repeat is available to help ensure you are interpreting the chart correctly. Take care to review the charts to ensure you work the correct size. Note that the Twisted pattern shifts one stitch to the left with each vertical repeat. During Neck shaping, maintain pattern as est’d as much as possible. When in doubt, purl the stitch.
