I love the versatility of this sweater! It’s so simple, so classic, so easy to wear (I like things that are actually used and bring me joy). You can wear this pullover all year round; make it for spring in an unpretentious cotton like Cascade Avalon, or something for fall & winter in any of a number of wools (see below). It’ll look great in a solid, heather, or semi-solid colour. The sizing provided is generous, and it doesn’t suck up too much yarn. It’s partially knit in the round, so there isn’t too-too much seaming involved – yay!.
I love the simple lines of this light, top-down pullover. You can make it with any fingering weight yarn, variegated (Manos Alegria, Malabrigo Mechita, Koigu KPPPPM), semi-solid (Madeline Tosh Merino Light, Manos Alegria, Malabrigo Mechita), ombre (Cascade Heritage Wave), or solid (Cascade Heritage).

Smithfield is an easy to knit and wear top down pullover with a turtleneck, rib details and allover texture. It’s designed to be worn with a few inches of positive ease, but how much ease is entirely a personal matter. The best way to get just the right amount is to find a piece of clothing that fits just the way you want your sweater to fit and measure it. Lay the garment on a flat surface and measure the span across the chest from underarm to underarm. Then while you’ve got it there, check the length too. Top-down raglans are really easy to modify so measure the length from the under arm to the hem and again to the sleeve cuffs. Compare these measurements to those of the schematic and choose the size that most closely matches the measurements from the garment you measured.

Malabrigo Rios is a super-duper soft, machine washable yarn made from 100% merino wool. It’s hand dyed for subtle variations. Great for anyone and any project except felting (it will not felt). Especially suitable for babies, kids and men.
Sometimes when I’m in need of inspiration instead of browsing patterns on Ravelry I take a stroll through Projects. Sometimes things look different in a darker or lighter colour, a different type of texture or a different type of dye. Father Cables by Panoramka immediately caught my eye.
