Savoy is one of my favorite designs. I love how the coloring of the yarn shifts as it progresses up the garment and how its bold patterning demands attention. Charts detail the placement of each stitch. The fronts and back use the same chart, while the sleeves feature a centralized pattern surrounded by stripes. Because of Savoy’s repeating pattern, it’s actually easy to keep track of where you are in the chart once you begin.
