This striking colour work sweater is knit top down, in the round, beginning with a provisional cast on. The neck shaping and collar are finished at the end, making it easy to adjust the neck shaping should you wish to.

The sample is knit in Shibui Echo, but it can be knit in many other dk, sport or fingering weight yarns, as long as you can achieve the pattern gauge and a fabric you like. It would look fantastic with a mix of hand dyed yarns or a gradient set for the contrast colours as well!

Intended to fit with 2-7 inches (5-17 cm) of ease. Shown in size M1 with about 7 inches of ease.
