DESCRIPTION
With snow in the air, we’re dreaming of spring. This is a sweet heirloom sweater that’s not machine washable, but extremely soft and a pleasure to knit. It’s made out of a super-soft baby alpaca.

TECHNIQUES USED
Must know how to knit and purl in round, work single increases and decreases, and be comfortable working with 2 colours. Will be working stranded knitting in 2 colours from charts, and corrugated 1x1 ribbing.

PATTERN NOTES
A yoke sweater worked in the round from the bottom up and in one piece in 6 colours with corrugated 1x1 rib edgings in 6 sizes. The baby sizes have an opening in the back, so the top of the yoke is worked back and forth to create a keyhole neckline. Baby sizes are marked with square brackets, children’s sizes in curly ones.

GAUGE
25.5 sts and 36 rnds to 4 inches/10 cm square in stocking stitch worked in the round.
