PACIFIC CREST
by Elizabeth Doherty

Designer's Description:

Slip-stitch patterns zig and zag and keep the knitting zipping along in this entertaining top-down design. A traditional shape with a modern twist: Pacific Crest’s circular yoke has underarm shaping that adds ease and increased mobility to the garment.
The pattern includes an extensive ‘Notes’ file, with suggestions on customizing the design to suit your style or your stash.

If these colors don't speak to you, we have more than 30 available in our Caravan open stock assortment.

Though Pacific Crest was designed using a different yarn, we are featuring the sample from one of the test knitters - Eva @sewmanygifts.  Eva selected Crave Yarn Caravan in the colorway Quixotic for her Pacific Crest.  Learn more about Eva's project on her Ravelry project page. Thank you Eva!
Please note that Quixotic is a bit more muted than it appears in Eva's photograph.
