This pattern was originally released free to a group of lovely knitters who were brave enough to join in a mystery Knit-A-Long in November 2010.
Fratello is a cute little seamless boys top (which is definitely unisex) with a couple of very cute features; front cable panel, and cute little cable detail on the sleeves.
This is the brother pattern to sorello.
Both patterns were released mid-January 2011 with all proceeds from pattern sales for the remainder of January going to the Queensland Flood Relief Fund to help our brothers and sisters in need in the north.
This garment is suitable for any yarn type that knits at the required tension. While the garment is suitable for cotton, a yarn with a touch of memory will work best with the pattern elements. I knit the test garment in WOOLganics Organic merino knitters yarn, a lovely plump 8ply.
