Free Pattern: Pullover with Single Motif

This is a very basic sweater. Knitted in stock-inette stitch with a single motif on the front, it is a perfect project for you to try.
The Netherlands Pullover with Single Motif never designed your own sweater or knitted in the round. For the ultimate in simplicity, skip the motif and knit this sweater in plain stockinette stitch using a gorgeous multicolored or textured yarn.

* Texture stitches: optional single motif on stockinette background, with ribbing at lower edge
* Lower body worked in the round and upper body sections worked back and forth
* Shallow square neckline, finished with picked-up ribbing
* Sleeves picked up at armholes and knitted down to ribbed cuffs

The sweater with a 40-inch (101.6-cm) body circumference and 24-inch (61-cm) body length (including 2 inches [5 cm] of ribbing) in chunky-weight yarn with 31⁄2 stitches and 5 rows to the inch (14 stitches and 20 rows to 10 cm).The illustration on the next page shows a sweater of the same size in worsted-weight yarn with 5 stitches and 7 rows to the inch (20 stitches and 28 rows to 10 cm).The size of the motif will vary, depending on the gauge of your yarn. Remember that this is YOUR sweater, worked to your specifications and reflecting your ideas.
