Anaashah is inspired by meadow plants – lupine, fireweed, and wild grasses. This sweater is knit seamlessly and from the top down starting with a simple rolled neckline. The pattern includes options for short or long sleeves – choose what’s best for your climate and lifestyle. This sweater is light enough to wear on cool summer nights while being equally useful for layering during the colder months.
This sweater is top down, knit in the round, and seamless with an elegant, rolled neckline. You simply cast on and knit a few rows before starting the yoke shaping. A couple short rows are added above the colorwork and then the colorwork yoke is worked. A few more short rows are worked and then the body and sleeves are separated and worked in the round. The body is straight and is designed to be worn with ease. Instructions for short or long sleeves are included.
Skill Level: Advanced beginner looking to learn color work and short rows.; Intermediate – must know short rows, increase decrease.
