Feature Pattern of the Week - Happy Harvest

Happy Harvest by Elizabeth Smith
New Berroco Ultra Wool Chunky, Butternut & Driftwood

Fall knitting just got a little more fun with the newest yarn from Berroco. Introducing new Berroco Ultra Wool Chunky! The Happy Harvest pullover by Elizabeth Smith is the perfect piece to try out this soft, 100% superwash wool yarn.

Happy Harvest is a quick knit that combines a fun acorn lace stitch pattern with simple garter and stockinette stitch. It uses 2 colors - a main color for most of the garment and a contrasting color for the top portion of the back and the cowl. It features button closures at each side (to create armholes), a hi/lo hemline and a separate, removable cowl that can be worn with or without the garment (or with a completely different outfit!).

Now for the most difficult decision...which colors to choose?

YARN

Main Color: 5(6, 7) skeins Berroco Ultra Wool Chunky

Contrasting Color: 2 skeins (all sizes)

Sizes: 1 (2, 3)

To Fit Bust Sizes: 32-40 (42-50, 52-60)”

Finished Circumference: 51 (58, 68)”


Picking Your Size: Choose a size based on the “To Fit Bust Size” measurement (this provides approx. 8-16”/20-40 cm of positive ease, depending on size). Shown in Size 1, being worn with approx 16” of positive ease at the bust. If you prefer a more sweater/vest-like fit (instead of a poncho-like fit), choose a size with less positive ease.
