Hedgerow is one of 16 glorious designs in Stranded Knits, a superb technique manual and pattern collection that Ann created for Rowan Yarns. The book is available from Rowan stockists.
The sweater is knitted from the bottom up in rounds, with a steek for the front opening. Side shaping and a compound raglan yoke create a flattering fit.
The colourwork and steeking techniques used are all taught in the book, as is the one-row buttonhole technique used in the button band.
The sizing given above is for the wearer’s actual full bust measurement. The finished sweater includes 5 to 7.5cm/2 to 3 inches of positive ease.
The tension/gauge given above is for the stranded colourwork after blocking, knitted on the largest needle. The smaller needles are for the garter stitch edgings. Please note that Felted Tweed DK is akin to a US sportweight/heavy fingering.
