This pattern can be found on pages 60-66 of Knitting Green: Conversations and Planet-Friendly Projects, by Ann Budd with contributions from some of the knitwear industry’s leading designers.

Green Mountain Spinnery Sylvan Spirit is a lovely blend of fine wool and Tencel, a fiber derived from wood pulp harvested from Southern oak and gum trees grown on land that’s unsuitable for grazing. The subtle sheen and gentle drape of this yarn are evident in the cables and cowl collar in Therese Chynoweth’s pullover. Therese worked the body in the round to the armholes, then worked the back and front separately to the shoulders. She picked up stitches for the collar around the neckline and worked a series of increases to produce a generous flare.
