Leaps and Bounds
Leaps and Bounds is a pretty top featuring contrasting coloured sleeves, leaping tramlines and bounding cable patterning. It has a flattering squared-off neckline and a gentle waist shaping. An unusual sweater that offers an intriguing aspect whichever way you look at it. Mix and match yarn colours to suit your taste.
It is worked flat in 2 pieces (front and back) from the bottom-up, using the simplest form of intarsia. The cable patterning (the Bounds) along with the horizontal garter ridge tramlines (the Leaps) add decorative detail. Colour 1 is for left sleeve and left side of the body and Colour 2 is for right sleeve and the majority of the body. The sleeves are picked up and knitted in the round from the top-down using circular needles.
