Front view, Hedge Fence Pullover

A year and a half later, this pattern is DONE! Details here.


Hedge Fence is knitted in the round, with sleeve caps worked flat and sewn in. All 12 sizes (31" - 55") are individually charted, although the pattern text includes several pages on how to modify the garment to fit your body.


Pattern is available here for $8.50.

    Wow Elinor, that is gorgeous! It looks like a great fit on him as well. I like the tailored look of it.

    Thanks everyone!

    All I have to say is that he'd better wear the hell out of it. :)

    I remember when you started this! It fits amazingly, and what I'm most impressed with is the neckline, which often looks like a major afterthought in sweaters like this, but it very nicely incorporated here.

    Holy crap, Matt would love this. I don't know if I'd love KNITTING it for him, but it's seriously amazing.
  • Julia Vesper 6y

    Oh Elinor! Another win, definitely!!

    @Minty: What, like 5 years ago? It feels like it, at least. Part of the problem was that I designed as I went and had to rip the neck once before I got it right. Stupid. Always plan first. It was a huge PITA to get the neck to do that in all 12 sizes, but I'm really proud that I got it to work!!

    @Bertha: How tall is he? Because that's really the key to loving/hating the knitting! :)

    Fantastically gorgeous!
    and I too am in LOVE with the neck - it's really the first thing that people who don't know a thing about knitting notice.

    I love how relaxed it looks at the bottom, like it won't ride up. Nice work!
  • Janet 6y

    So awesome - it's really gorgeous and looks like a classic.

    I just found your gorgeous Hedge Fence Sweater. This is exquisite! I love how you neatly merged the center cable into the ribbed edges and I LOVE that you placed a whole other large cable along the side seam. Genius!
