Vintersol (“winter sunshine“) is inspired by a walk in a frosty, wintery meadow. This example is made with a soft and wooly double strand of Camilla Vad yarn, which creates a lofty worsted weight that is warm yet lightweight. This design lends itself well to a variety of color combinations. Choose 3 colors of yarn or simplify and go with two. You can even fade the background of the yoke, creating a gradient, while using a light color for the motif.

Construction: This sweater is a top down hybrid. It starts with a provisional cast on with waste yarn using a simple long tail cast on. No additional skills are needed for this method (called COWYAK). Several rounds are worked with the waste yarn and then the main color is joined. The stranded yoke is worked and the neckline is finished. A lifeline is inserted, the waste yarn is removed, revealing live stitches, and then the body and sleeves are worked from the provisional cast on edge. You can try it on as you go: the yoke, body, and sleeve lengths are all adjustable, as well as the neckline circumference, if desired. This sweater is worked seamlessly and in the round.

Finished measurements:
Bust circumference: 33.75 (35.5, 37, 40.5)(43.75, 47.25, 50.5, 54)” / 84 (88.5, 92.5, 101)(109.5, 118, 126.5, 134.5) cm.

GAUGE: 19 stitches and 26 rounds = 4” / 10cm
