Hyperion Pullover

Hyperion Pullover by Laura Birek

Hyperion Pullover

I’m so happy to announce my latest pattern for Knit Picks: my Hyperion Pullover!

It’s named after the winding and hilly Hyperion Avenue in Los Angeles — home of the first Walt Disney Studios, inspiration to Joss Whedon and Angel, and just-plain-cool street near me!

Hyperion Pullover

The pullover is knit flat cuff-to-cuff, then the body stitches are picked up in the round and knit down seamlessly.


The idea was to have a light, airy, summer-y top you could layer over a camisole (or even a bathing suit!) — and the honeycomb lace stitch across the yoke and armholes gives just enough hint of skin without being too revealing.

The pattern is part of the Golden Morning collection, which you can get as an eBook or printed copy. You can also buy each of the patterns individually, if you like things a bit more a la carte.

I’d recommend buying the whole book because it’s an amazing deal — 15 projects for $14.99! That’s hard to beat! The rest of the patterns are gorgeous. Two of my favorites are the Astonish Top by Katy Banks and River Walk Pullover by Erica Jackofsky.



Aren’t they gorgeous?

      There are two sizes included in the pattern, but you can easily make it larger or smaller by just adding a few extra stitches!
