You too can knit your own gorgeous Veer Pullover by Eri Shimizu in the KOKON Chunky Mohair yarn. The Veer is a relaxed-fit pullover, worked from the top down. The shoulders are worked in the round until the piece is divided into front and back, which are worked separately for arm openings. They are joined again at the underarms and worked in the round from there onwards.
Veer means feather in Dutch. Feather placements in the instructions are just a suggestion. Take your pullover as a canvas and enjoy drawing Veers as you like.
This fabulous pattern is now available on Ravelry. I am 5'10" and rather busty. I knitted the size XL/2XL. My version is knitted in the colour Smoke. The veers are knitted in the Kokon Fingering Weight Merino Mini Skeins in the colour Night.
