Product details

The yoke is worked first, bottom up, and then the body and sleeves are worked top down, this makes it easier to customize the length of each. This is enabled by a provisional cast on at the bottom of the yoke. Short rows are used to shape the yoke & neckline. Otherwise the sweater is knit entirely in the round. With regard to colours, each contrasting colour only touches the main colour (other than within the motif immediately above and below the flowers), so it is easier to decide on colours or alter them as you go, compared to the more intricate designs where many of the colours are side by side. I felt this would give it a clean, modern, sort of “stencilled” look. It would work really well with only 2 or 3 colours as well. It is intended to fit with anywhere from 0 to 5 inches of ease. I like my sweaters loose, so it’s shown here with about 5 inches of ease. The pattern includes optional waist shaping if you prefer a more fitted style. The sweater pictured was knit in Brooklyn Tweed
