Fortitude

Sometimes, life throws a curve ball or two when you least expect it, rendering all plans null and void. When this happens, we all have the inner fortitude to take that ball and throw it back at the universe. Designed with those tough times in mind, “Fortitude” makes a moderately easy project when you want to knit something but can’t fathom doing complicated lace or cables.

Knit from the top down, “Fortitude” has a classic shape with fun stripe details on the sleeves. Its design combines two different knitting methods: traditional saddle shoulders and contiguous sleeves after the method developed by SusieM. It is also absolutely seamless! Even the hidden pockets are attached as you work the short-row-shaping for the lapel!
The fronts are held together by two buttons with a thread shank for an extra stylish look.

The pattern provides sizing from XS to 2X (30” to 48”) with a full schematic and measurements. The sweater shown was created using Rowan Felted Tweed DK in two lovely grays. Use your favorite DK weight yarn, in any color combination, at a gauge of 22 sts and 26 rows per 4 inches to show some “Fortitude”.
