Perry Street Rugby

  Perry St 3

Sofie has been bugging me for an over-sized sweater that she can layer over jeans, and snuggle up in. When I showed her the pile of Cascade Eco Cloud that has been waiting for just the right project she agreed that it would be perfect for the sort of cozy sweater that she had in mind.

With it's chunky cable on a ground of garter stitch stripes, the Perry Street Rugby will be her go to sweater for heading off to class when the cold weather arrives this fall. She'll wear it over a t-shirt and jeans, adding layers and a scarf as the weather calls for them. This is the ideal sweater for football games, walks in the park on a chilly afternoon or enjoying a crisp fall day on campus.

The best part is that since it's an Aran weight and mostly garter stitch, this fun sweater knits up quickly, so there's still plenty of time to make one by the time the cooler weather truly sets in.

Gorgeous! (sweater & daughter). I like the over the B&W back view especially.

I meant, over the shoulder back view.

Love this! I'm so impressed by how you managed to include so many great details into the perfect, comfy layering sweater.

Where did she get the shoes? I love them! Probably too old to wear them but love them!

gorgeous! i live in southern california, so i've literally never made a pullover in my life, but i've queued this one! i love the cable & the textures.

that is super gorgeous! Perfect for a canadian winter. I always love your patterns, in face i just cast on mod this afternoon!

Absolutely LOVE this sweater! Your color choice is perfect too!!

Such a lovely sweater!

I love her shoes too! What brand are they? Where did she get them?

So it has a cable fore and aft?

Yes. The cable is on both sides. The black and white photo, taken from the back is the actual back of the sweater.

Lovely - and great photos. You are lucky to have such beautiful cooperative models so close at hand. Well, maybe a subway ride away.

I love the rope effect the t-shirt has on the left side very artistic.
