Gull Island is a casual pullover with a Henley button placket. It is an easy project, with minimal shaping and lots of stockinette stitch--perfect for while you binge watch your favorite show. It is worked in the round from the bottom up, with stitches divided to work the upper fronts and upper back upward to the shoulders. The sleeves are worked in the round from the cuff upward and then joined to the body with raglan shaping. Gull Island uses the warm but light Luma, a blend of wool, cotton, linen, and silk. It is a DK weight yarn, knitted slightly loosely here at 5 stitches per inch, for a great wearable fabric. Luma is dyed to create a subtle tonal effect of light and dark variation, giving a wonderful casual look to the fabric. Finished chest measurements are 35 (39, 43, 47, 51, 55, 59)". The sweater can be hand washed and dried flat. Designed by Kate Gagnon Osborn.
