It wouldn’t be spring without some “twitterpatted” little birdies. Love Birds is a yoked sweater with three-quarter length sleeves, worked seamlessly in the round from the bottom up with fingering weight yarn. It has hemmed edges at the bottom and sleeve cuffs that are adorned with bands of stranded work. Once the sleeves and body are united, the yoke is worked with an original stranded motif.
