Meet the Mariner
The Mariner Pullover from Interweave Knits magazine, Weekend 2010 issue.
Sizes 6-12 months...all the way up to women's extra-large!
I knitted this one in Kraemer's Perfection Worsted yarn in color Fauna, a pale grayish-pink. It's adorned it with mother-of-pearl buttons. Perfection is a superwash merino and acrylic blend. Machine wash, tumble dry. That's perfection in my book!
The stitch pattern running down the front is Half Linen Stitch and requires a technique called "short rows" - something that is common is when knitting socks. The sleeves are worked as cast-on extensions of the body, so when you bind-off, there's very little sewing to be done. For those of you who have knitted the One-piece Baby Cardigan, this will sound very familiar.
