Vicinity Pullover

All right, there is officially summer and it is a time to knit summer tops, light pullovers, breezy tanks and many more quick and nice things to wear in hot mid-day or chilly twilight hours.
Well, here is my addition to plethora of summer knits – my brand-new design: Vicinity Pullover.
It is a top-down seamless pullover, worked in round. It is designed to be pretty oversized, at least 6'' of positive ease to make it very comfortable to wear these summer days.
Before I actually sat and started to draw the sketch and work on my swatches, I asked myself: "How would I describe the perfect summer top...for me?" Yes, that is my usual selfish approach to knitting design. And the list of features was like that:
– Oversized fit
– Drapey fabric
– Cables (yes, I don't want to abandon them even at summer:))
– Deep neckline
– Since I want it to be oversized, but don't want to look like a huge square in it with my D-bust, sleeves should be quite narrow. And short!
Well, once I was done with this list, the production itself was matter of days.
I was really happy with my sample and was so excited to see how this design would look when my lovely testers will start working on their projects. And results were beyond my wildest dreams. Every single project was so beautiful! Seriously, I was clapping my hands every time I saw the FO's pictures.
Here, you can judge for yourself: projects.

And as a special treat for my fellow knitters, I'm offering $1 discount on Vicinity Pullover pattern on Ravelry until June 21st (US PT).
