kobolt pullover chunky

Kobolt by Sarah Solomon was designed for a Woolfolk Merino/cotton yarn, but I’ve knitted it up in my Blue faced Chunky yarn in Olive. I really like Sarah Solomon’s designs and I’ve a couple waiting in my project queue.  I’m a 34″ chest and I knitted the 2nd size.  I had to go down a needle size to obtain the correct gauge and the jumper has ended up slightly smaller than the pattern.  I’ve short arms and hate over-long sleeves, so I knitted them a bit shorter than described in the pattern.  The design is knitted flat in pieces, in a traditional bottom-up manner with a slip-stitch selvedge to make sewing up neater.  I particularly like the wide turtleneck and the raglan shaping.  As it’s a chunky yarn, the jumper knitted up really quickly.

The jumper took 7 100g skeins of my Chunky yarn.
