Knitted from the bottom up, this sweet little sweater with three quarters sleeves was a first research to use the short rows that create the neckline of a yoke sweater as a decorative element. The stripes help to visualize how the short rows interact with each other. My Lopi Affection sweater is of the same facture.

Fitted sweater: chose one size under.

Graine d’Hélène… the name of this pattern is a pun on the name of the yarn I used, called Graine de laine, literally “Seed of Wool”, which sounds like “Seed of Hélène”. Graine de Laine is a range of yarns handyed by French blogger Laurence Mériat (froufrouetcapucine.fr) who I met when she came in a hiking and knitting tour with me in Iceland. Her artisanal production is very small but you can used many substitutes (I listed a few) and I look forward to seeing all the beautiful yarns and colors you will be using!
