Hillcrest PDF

Designed by Rachel Henry

Hillcrest was one of two winners of Challenge #2 of The Fiber Factor 2013!

As of July 2016, this pattern pattern has been revised and reformatted, and tech edited. Enjoy!

As a thank-you to you, dear knitter, for your patience and support … from now until the end of July 2016, get Hillcrest for only $2 by using coupon code Hillcrest2.

Did you make Hillcrest before July 2016? Would you like a free Ravelry copy? Post a picture of your sweater (complete, or WIP) in my forum and I will gift you a copy of the new pattern on Ravelry.

Hillcrest uses the modern exaggerated box sweater shape as a canvas for complex colorwork. The geometric panels evoke stained glass windows of the Prairie style, like those designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The palette is inspired by the common geranium – made beautiful in the abstract.

The body and sleeves are worked side to side, primarily in stockinette. The colorwork panels are worked in garter stitch with slipped stitches to create smooth edges and even proportions. Standard intarsia techniques should be followed throughout. All edges are finished with i-cord, for simplicity and smooth drape.


To make the pattern as-written:
Main Color (MC) #037 Gun Metal Grey 11 hanks / 1287 yds
Outline Color (OC) #002 - Black 2 hanks / 234 yds
Color 1 (C1) #026 - Pale Yellow 2 hanks / 234 yds
Color 2 (C2) #040 - Green Apple 2 hanks / 234 yds
Color 3 (C3) #041 - Karin’s Birthday Suit 1 hank / 117 yds
Color 4 (C4) #017 - Schoolhouse Red 1 hank / 117 yds
Color 5 (C5) #045 - Edgy Eggplant 1 hank / 117 yds


Sizing info:

sizes: XS (S, M, L, XL, 2X)
to fit bust: 30 (34, 38, 42, 46, 50)”
width of garment: 34 (34, 34, 38, 38, 38)”
circ at elbow: 9 (9.25, 9.5, 10, 10.5, 11)”

This style of garment uses a LOT of positive ease (obviously), so sizing may be taken with a grain of salt. The main thing to get right is to have enough fabric for it to be slouchy, and for the sleeves to be comfortably snug.
