When I began this design I was envisioning a sweater that was easy to throw on and go. I wanted the comfort of a sweatshirt with details that kept it neat and elegant. The color combinations are endless and this pattern is a great way to show off a hand dyed yarn. The yarn used for the sample is Malabrigo Sock in persia and ochre. The yoke made me think of a sunrise hence the name.
