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.

This kit includes 12 balls of Shade FC39 (blue heather) and 1 ball each of Shades 125, 1281, and FC7 and a Ravelry download code card for the pattern. The yarn in this kit will fit up to a size 38″. To knit a larger size please refer to the chart below.
