Milo & Maize Pattern (download only)

$6.00

Description

Milo & Maize is a yoke pullover knit from the bottom up. Its simple pattern of plants dancing around the neck was inspired by rows and rows – miles and miles – of grains dancing in a gentle breeze as we drove through the Midwest. The sight is mesmerizing and quite soothing.

The greatest portion of this sweater is knit in plain stockinette with a single color. Miles and miles of it some knitters might say, just like those crops. With a garter stitch hem, cuffs, and neckline, the classic construction offers the knitter a good bit of (nearly) mindless knitting, holding off on the fancy work for the very last.

The pattern includes ten sizes. The samples were knit in Jamieson & Smith jumper weight Shetland wool which makes it a light breathable garment, especially when worn with several inches of positive ease as seen on our model Emma.

Whether or not you’ve driven through the American Midwest where crops such as sorghum (milo) and maize (corn) are abundant, most of us can find beauty in the rhythmic patterns of crops in a planted field. This sweater is an homage to that beauty.
