Pattern: Bloc Pulli

Bloc Pulli on Ravelry $8 (no account necessary)

If you have a weakness for amazing-colored sock yarn and a known aversion to knitting socks, what are you to do? Knit yourself a Bloc Pulli! Contrasting cuffs shaped with short rows and a garter stitch edging at the collar set off that sock yarn from a straightforward body with a round yoke that doesn’t distract from the gorgeous color blocking.

What you'll love about knitting Bloc Pulli:

  • Short-row shaping on the long cuffs is fun to work
  • Sometimes you want a bit of in-the-round comfort knitting - you've got it! Nary a purl in sight (just three purl half rows to raise the back of the neck)
  • Sideways-knit collar means no tight (or fiddly) bindoff plus you've mastered a wonderful and useful technique

What you'll love about wearing Bloc Pulli:
  • Color blocking!
  • Lightweight yarn makes this a great multi-season sweater you'll reach for all the time
  • Though not fitted in the body, the properly-sized yoke ensures you'll look pulled together
