The Pattern

The Briar Rose Pullover is an intermediate knit pattern. The pullover itself is a fitted sweater with very little or no ease. Lion Brand's Color Made Easy, which is a bulky weight category 5 yarn, was used to work up this sweater. Unfortunately, Lion Brand has discontinued this yarn. At the end of this post, you can explore some of the other yarns my testers have used for knitting up the Briar Rose Pullover.

This design is knitted bottom-up and displays a beautiful knotted cable on the left and right of the front panel. Sleeves are also knitted bottom-up and are designed to be set-in sleeves. Front and back panels, as well as sleeves, are seamed together and stitches are picked up for the collar.

Final bust sizes include: 32(35, 39, 43, 47, 51, 54).

Design Story

This simple yet elegant pullover was designed specifically for my mother who requested a pullover for Christmas... from two Christmases ago. 😅 I finally got around to designing this piece for her and she is loving it very much. She wears it quite often as the yarn has been keeping her nice and warm through 2020/2021's very cold winter.

The Briar Rose Pullover is my first knit pullover design. Since this sweater was designed for my mother, I wanted to design something that was a little more than just something simple. I added the knotted cable to add a simple touch to a plain pullover.
