Corona Borealis is one of 16 glorious designs in Stranded Knits, a superb technique manual and pattern collection that Ann created for Rowan Yarns. The book is available from Rowan stockists.
The sweater is knitted from the top down in rounds, with short rows both above and below the colourwork to scoop the front neck. Side shaping also makes for a flattering fit.
With a relatively short section of colourwork this is a great project for beginning colourwork knitters.
The sizing given above is for the wearer’s actual full bust measurement. The finished sweater includes 4 to 8.5cm/1.5 to 3.25 inches of positive ease.
The given tension/gauge is after blocking. Please note that Felted Tweed DK is akin to a US sportweight/heavy fingering.
