This is the Aran version of Simple Ziggurat and shares its pleasing characteristics, that is…

Simple Aran

  • has bold colour blocks and simple, pleasing lines
  • is knitted with the Åsa Tricosa Ziggurat top-down tricnique
  • has set-in sleeves that are also knitted top-down and in the round
  • a rolling neckline that is knitted last
  • is seamless – not a seam in sight, no joining of pieces
  • has waist shaping and optional bust darts

Step-by-step instructions and a photo tutorial guide you through the unconventional beginning.
The pattern is fully written out.
A Helpful Table keeps track of rows and shaping but is not required reading.

Note: Sizes 38 and 40 can with some bravado or luck be knitted with only 4 skeins of the main colour. Tips for how to stretch your skeins are provided.
