Circular yoke sweaters look charming on kids and is fun to knit. The simple math of increasing to create a growing circle is fascinating to me. I added my love for asymmetry to this and thus Felber was born. The name means bent, twisted to indicate the suppleness and I find it apt for the cables used in this sweater.

The sweater is worked in round, top down with gradual increases around the yoke. After working the body and sleeves till armhole, sleeve stitches are kept on a holder and body is worked till hem. Sleeves are knit in round.

The sweater is intended to be worn with 2-3” of positive ease.
