Ann Arbor Sport

ann arbor sport pullover knitting pattern, thermal rib

Like its worsted weight predecessor, Ann Arbor Sport melds bohemian elements with sporty ones.
Just the thing for an afternoon at the stadium, lunch at Zingerman's Deli, or a stroll across the Quad.

This sport weight wear-anywhere pullover is knitted in my own cushy thermal rib tuck-stitch pattern, worked in a classic raglan style, with boho rolled edges and options of either crew or T necklines.

Ann Arbor Sport is knitted in the round from the top down, beginning with a provisional cast-on at the neckline. The stitch pattern is a variation on classic brioche, with a wide raglan panel for shaping the yoke. Sleeves and body are unshaped and are finished with a classic rib followed by a rolled edge. The neckline has a double-knitted baffle that adds both style and neckline stability, can be made in either a crew or T neck.
