First, for all of you who have seen the Fall Interweave Preview and sent e-mails – thank you! The upcoming issue features one of my sweater designs that I’m really excited about. If you’ve yet to catch the preview, check it out here – there’s a bunch of great sweaters, it looks like a really great issue (though you can’t really go wrong with Fall knitting, in my opinion).

Cobblestone Pullover

Pattern: Cobblestone Pullover

Yarn: Classic Elite Skye Tweed in ‘Upland Green’



I designed and knit most of this while I was in Dublin last winter. Despite finding n’ery a yarn shop there, it was a great place to be inspired – plenty of wool, texture and color all around to get the creative juices flowing. The Cobblestone was a bar we spent an evening in listening to traditional Irish music on the North side of town – I thought the name was fitting.

My goal with this piece was simple shapes that would feature a nice tweedy wool and a goodly amount of texture without overdoing it. It’s worked seamlessly with a round yoke and garter strips up the sides (below the underarms). A nice cozy sweater that I’m really looking forward to having around this winter.


Pictured is the medium size – my apologies for the wrinkles. I was forced to photograph this in a pinch, before wet blocking. You know how those deadlines are.

Thanks again for all your support – it is always very much appreciated. Happy knitting!

  1. Which SHELTER color most closely matches Upland Green? I am smitten with these photos and the original Cobblestone’s colors… Thank you!

  2. Hello,

    I am working on the Cobblestone pullover for a friend. I’m about to move all pieces to a large needle. I do not have the glossary referenced for the short row. Do you have those directions?

    Regards, claudia smith
