Drops Harvest Queen Pullover Project

Harvest Queen is a cozy, oversized pullover that's knit in one piece from the top-down. It features a yoke construction with pretty cable and lace detail. It's knit on 9mm needles, so it works up fast! The yarns recommend are blown yarns, making it a lighter, airier textile than expected. Video and written tutorials are provided at the bottom of the free pattern (they even have a place you can ask them questions about the pattern, and the pattern is available in 15 languages).

Needles & Notions

If you do not already have the needles for this project we recommend buying interchangeable needles. They are very versatile for top-down sweaters and have more longevity for future projects (if you need a longer or shorter needle you can purchase an inexpensive new cord, rather than an entire needle. If you are buying individual tips and cords, that Knitter's Pride are the most affordable option. If you are thinking about investing in a set, the Chiaogoo Twist Red Lace 4" Tips: 2.75mm - 10mm have the best range and versatility for an assortment of projects.

    Hacks

    I don't love the way Drops formats their pattern, I find it makes them harder to follow. If you find you have the same issue consider copying the text into a free, cloud based text editing program like Google Docs and cleaning up the formatting to your liking - I find it's worth the time to separate the sections. If you have a more pronounced learning disability you may even want to put it into a spreadsheet program like Google Sheets to break it down into line-by-line instructions - you can even make it into a chart and tick off your work as you go.
