The thermal pullover takes on a bold new look when rendered at an exploded scale in Quarry. The classic woodsman’s waffle weave forms a geometric grid at this large gauge and is worked from a four-row pattern that’s easily memorized. Deschutes is knit flat in pieces and sewn with partially exposed seams for rustic detail. Roomy sleeves are set in to ensure a tidy fit around the shoulders to balance the straight lines of the torso. Choose a size that gives you no more than 4-5” of ease if you want to keep the shape feminine. Deschutes is a good pattern for darker shades like Slate (shown here), Serpentine, or Hematite.
