Inspired by the beauty of Bohus sweaters, Falling Stars includes signature Bohus details such as stranded knitting textured with purl bumps, a fine gauge, and of course, glowing gradients of color. This yoked sweater design is knit from the top down in the round, so you can try your sweater on as you go. There is an option to knit your sweater as a pullover, or steek it and turn it into a cardigan. Also, you will have enough yarn to knit a matching cap, which is perfect for checking your gauge in the round or brushing up on your stranded knitting skills before diving into the sweater design.
(Additional gauge information: 28 stitches and 32 rounds = 4” in stranded colorwork pattern worked in the round.)
