City Limits by Tanis Lavallee Ravelry Pattern


City Limits is Tanis’ perfect sweatshirt style pullover. Written for a versatile worsted weight gauge, what she loves about this pattern is that you can really make it your own. Her sample was knit holding two strands of fingering weight throughout in 5 different colours to create a marled fade - Rowan’s sample features a single show stopping speckled colourway of worsted weight yarn. Her sample is shown with the purl side side out while Rowan is sporting his with the stockinette side out. She finished all of Rowan’s hems with ribbing while hers received an icord treatment. So much room to customize! Her sample features about 5” of positive ease with no waist shaping but instructions for optional waist shaping are provided. A versatile blank canvas sweater pattern - hervvery favourite kind!

Or 2 strands of Fingering (approx. 113 g = 450 yds) held together. If using fingering you will need double the yardage. For my sample I held 2 strands of fingering with 1 strand of mohair throughout and though I love that mohair halo it isn’t necessary to obtain gauge. Totally optional!
