Yabane is inspired by a traditional Japanese arrow feather pattern (“yabane”). The body of this sweater is worked seamlessly in circular knitting in one piece to the underarms. Front and back are worked separately above underarms. A circular needle is used to accommodate the large number of stitches. Sleeves are worked separately and attached at the end. Collar stitches are picked up and knitted once back and front are joined at the shoulders.
