Artichoke is an oversized sweater with an airy lace pattern. It is knitted in the round from bottom up, beginning with a tight ribbed cuff. It has dropped shoulders and stitches for the sleeves are picked up around the armhole edge. The sweater knits up beautifully in a fluffy and quite loosely spun wool, such as Merino d’Arles from Rosy Green Wool.
