Guthrie is a round yoked sweater knit seamlessly from the top down with an all-over colorwork design and 3/4 length sleeves. The bottom and sleeve hems feature a simple cable ribbing pattern. Instructions are given for cropped or full body length versions, and the sleeves can also be knitted to a longer length if desired.
This design is named for iconic folk singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie, one of my favorite artists. The rustic nature of the yarn and the mix of patterns in this design remind me of American folk art and inspired me to name this sweater for the king of American folk music.
You will need 2 colors of DK or sport weight yarn for this pattern.
The gold sample is knit in Julie Asselin Leizu DK and Spincycle Dyed in the Wool, which is a sport weight, thick and thin yarn. As long as your gauge matches that given, you can use the weight or combined weights of your choice.
Gold sample shows cropped length. Navy sample shows standard length and long sleeves.
