  • The Pixels Pullover is a beautiful and modern sweater with a wide open neckline, cropped length, and a bold all over colour work motif. It's knit in incredibly soft Drops Air, which is a blown alpaca blend that is both light and warm. Claudia Q designed and knitted this pullover during her 13 hour plane ride home from Japan earlier this year, and it kept her thoroughly entertained the entire flight. When travelling in Japan she saw so many beautiful things, and was inspired to create something equally as lovely to bring back as a sort of souvenir in the form of knitwear.

    Designed by Claudia Q

    This sweater is worked from the top down with raglan shaping. A section of wrap and turn short rows are worked at the back neck and back hem to help with fit. Sleeve instructions are written to use DPNs, however an alternate method of working small circumferences can be used, such as Magic-Loop, or a short circular needle for the larger sizes. When working stranded colour work, keep floats in the back loose to maintain stretch. For floats longer than 5 sts, twist yarns together in the back.
