Sometimes the simplest things are the best, and the Drake pullover is no exception. Its simple, stylish silhouette is matched by its sophisticated and elegant construction. It combines the irrefutable good looks of a set-in-sleeve with the ease of seamless construction. It is bound to become a favorite for both knitters and recipients - even better if they are the same person!
The Drake pullover is knit in worsted weight wool from the bottom up and features a unique seamless set-in-sleeve construction with ribbed cuffs, hem and collar. The sample pictured uses a tubular cast on and bind off, which are indicated in the directions; however, a knitted or long tail cast on can be substituted.
