Over a year ago, my cropped pullover pattern Coronis was published in the Autumn 2014 issue of Pompom Quarterly. Now that a year has passed, the rights have reverted to me, so I've updated the pattern to my style sheet, added some pictures of me wearing the design, and re-released it into the wild.

This is a top-down circular-yoked sweater with a slip-stitch stripe detail. As written, it has a definite cropped shape, but many, many knitters who have made this lengthened the body. I might rip out the ribbing and knit the body longer- cropped is not totally my jam, and there's nothing worse than a sweater in your closet that never gets worn. 

It IS kind of cute with the tied shirt though, right? Not something I could wear to work, because I usually end up kind of dirty at the end of the day, but maybe to a holiday party this coming season. 

This sweater uses DK weight yarn in three colors. I'm wearing size 3 (34" bust). This is also the size the model wore on the cover. By "size", I mean "exact same sweater." I originally designed it to have a bit of positive ease, but I've learned about myself that I really, really prefer a bit of negative ease at the bust for my sweaters. Lots of knitters have made Coronis with positive ease, though, and they look great. Personal preference: we all haz it.

The pattern is now available for individual download on Ravelry. (Also Craftsy, Patternfish, and Loveknitting, if you like one of those better.)

Just for blog readers: you can use the coupon code CORONIS on Ravelry and get this pattern for just $4. Expires on December 31st, so there's time.
