Arte Nuova is a lightweight, draped top, perfect for warmer months. It is worked top-down, in the round, featuring a hybrid raglan / yoke construction. Chevron cables run along each shoulder and down the outside of the sleeve and a section of intricate colourwork decorates the waist. This is an engaging, motivating knit that yields an elegant and versatile finished garment.

Yarn & Yardage
Arte Nuova has been created using Positive Ease’s Pure Merino, a beautiful fingering weight yarn.
The garment is worked with a Main Colour (MC) yarn (the sample uses Tweed Coat) and a Contrast Colour (CC) yarn (the sample uses Cosmos).
Approximate yardage:
MC: 667 (758: 838: 920: 1008) (1109: 1199: 1309: 1379) metres / 167 (190: 210: 230: 252) (277: 300: 327: 345) grams
CC: 87 (96: 106: 115: 124) (134: 143: 153: 162) metres / 22 (24: 26: 29: 31) (34: 36: 38: 40) grams

Edited to add:
One knitter has sensibly requested yardages for the section from the start of the colourwork to the end of the body, in case you want to add length to the garment. This information is not included in the pattern so I’m adding it here. Approximate yardages for this section are as follows:
MC: 166 (184: 203: 221: 240) (258: 276: 295: 313) metres / 41 (46: 51: 55: 60) (65: 69: 74: 78) grams
CC: 83 (92: 101: 111: 120) (129: 138: 147: 157) metres / 21 (23: 25: 28: 30) (32: 35: 37: 39) grams.
