Notes

A stripey seamless yoke sweater for Willow from a variety of single ball and leftover sport weight cabled/crepe style yarns.

Two of these I overdyed to get the right colours: the purple is dyed from white Filatura di Crosa Prestige Baby and the darker teal blue is an overdye of some of the teal green Patons Classic Bluebell.

Rolled stockinette neckline (which I had to make a bit larger than the pattern), 2x2 ribbing for cuffs and hem. Slipped stitch up each side “seam”. Otherwise knit to pattern :)
