I found this knitting pattern online, the "Lumme Pullover," designed by Sari Nordlund, which is inspired by the stunning contrast between the dark waters of Finnish forest ponds and the white water lilies. "Lumme" is the Finnish word for water lily, and this pullover captures that essence beautifully.
This knitting pattern is crafted seamlessly from the top down, beginning at the neckband. It features a unique construction where the sleeves and body are separated at the underarm and knitted independently.
The highlight of the Lumme Pullover is its yoke, knitted in stranded colorwork with increases seamlessly integrated into the design. For the best visual impact, it's recommended to choose two colors with a strong contrast.
The pattern offers a range of sizes, from 1 to 9, with detailed measurements for each, including finished bust circumference, lengths from hem to underarm, yoke length, sleeve length, upper arm, and cuff circumference. It's important to note that any adjustments in lengths can affect the amount of yarn required.
For the yarn, the main color (MC) requires 4 to 7 skeins of Cascade 220 Heathers or a similar worsted weight yarn, and the contrasting color (CC) requires 1 to 2 skeins of Cascade 220 or equivalent. The pattern sample is shown in the colorways 9465 Vashon Island and 8010 Natural.
Needles are specified in three sizes (A, B, and C) for different parts of the pullover, including the cuffs, neckline, hem, sleeves, and colorwork sections of the yoke. The needle sizes range from 4.0 mm / US6 to 5.0 mm / US8, with recommendations for DPNs and circular needles of varying cable lengths.
The gauge for this pattern is 18 stitches and 22 rounds per 10 cm / 4 inches in colorwork on size C needles and Stockinette stitch on size B needles, measured after blocking.
Essential notions for this project include a stitch marker, waste yarn, a sewing needle, and blocking tools.
The Lumme Pullover, with its intricate colorwork and thoughtful design, is a testament to the beauty and serenity of Finnish nature, ideal for knitters looking for a project with a harmonious blend of art and craft.
