I like it when articles I write simply occur to go collectively with out my actually intending them to. Earlier this week I wrote a couple of round yoke sweater that was labored in a single colour, noting that normally these sorts of sweaters have colorwork on the yoke to emphasise the development methodology.
At this time I’ve a sweater knitting sample that illustrates what I used to be saying. The Sharp Chevron knit sweater has stranded colorwork chevrons within the yoke portion of the sweater, which is a enjoyable distinction to the round rhythm of the will increase.
It additionally reveals the frequent design of getting colorwork on the yoke and the remainder of the physique being labored in a strong colour. That makes the start extra thrilling to knit and the tip sooner as a result of you possibly can simply knit straight on to your wanted size. (This one does even have a excessive low edge on the backside, however that’s fairly straightforward to do with just some brief rows.)
This sweater is rated intermediate and is labored from the highest down in cumbersome weight yarn for additional coziness. The sample is obtainable in 5 sizes as much as a chest measurement of 66 inches, which is meant to suit a variety from 52 to 62 inches, relying on the quantity of ease you prefer to.
The colorwork design is charted, nevertheless it’s a very brief and simple repeat, so this is able to be a great one to begin with for those who’ve by no means performed knitting from a chart earlier than. Select two colours of yarn with excessive distinction for finest outcomes. This is able to even be enjoyable with a multicolored yarn used because the contrasting colour, as a result of it could make the colorwork look extra complicated.
You’ll be able to seize the free sample, plus any provides you should full it, from Yarnspirations.
