Aumangea Pullover KNITTING PATTERN

$20.00

Aumangea: the Māori word for a person who is strong, brave, plucky, or tenacious. Does this describe you? Also named for the yarn used in this design, the Plucky Knitter, this pullover will be a (small) test of your character! Only the bravest and most resilient can knit this. But fear not, if you really want to give this project a go but are feeling hesitant, I have provided video and written tutorials a-plenty.
Additionally, I have a thread in my Ravelry forum which is exclusively for questions and pattern support on this pattern.

Difficulty Level: Intermediate – Advanced

Sizes: S, M, L, XL. Designed with 4 inches (10cm) of negative ease.
Final Bust Measurements: 28 inches, 32 inches, 36 inches, 40 inches / 70 cm, 80 cm, 90 cm, 100 cm


Pattern has been test-knit and professionally tech edited for errors and clarification.
