Field Guide No. 10: Downtown transports you to the heart of great design!

To see an Isabell Kraemer pattern is to want it: to knit it, and to wear it. The designs that work so well for Isabell herself somehow work well for a lot of other knitters, too.

Isabell’s cosmopolitan designs are comfortable everywhere, doing everything. They are casual, but considered. They are garments of confidence and ease. In other words: we all need to make one!

A band of geometric color makes this a very modern yoke. This sport-weight sweater works with pretty much any combination of two colors you can think up: dark with a light yoke, light with a dark yoke, subtle or wild as you wish.

This sweater is worked from the top down, such a fun technique: around and around, trying on as you go.
