Like Light Bulbs on lines in the garden…

Garden Lights is worked seamlessly from the top down. The back neck is raised by short rows before the stranded pattern fills most of the yoke. After sleeve separation, the body is worked in rounds down to the hem, before the sleeves are worked down to the cuffs.

This slightly rustic, naturally variegated Beiroa yarn creates an «organic» feel to the design. After washing the fabric lightens and blooms, and feels surprisingly light for a dk/worsted weight sweater.
