Swinside is a boxy pullover with drop-stitch garter panels at the hem and sleeves. It is knitted top-down using a clever, modular construction and Japanese short rows. The pattern gives you two yarn options: Canopy Fingering for a sweater with elegance and drape and Cumbria Fingering for an everyday sweater to keep you cosy on cool Spring days.
