This sweater gets its name from the Greek meander running up around the collar and cuffs in purl stitches. A similar intarsia meander goes up the center and under the arms. Meanders symbolize friendship, love and devotion, and eternity.
This sweater can be knit in 2 - 8 colors and is a good introduction to intarsia, including intarsia in the round. The color blocks are large enough that tangling does not present a problem.
