A collaboration with Moeke Yarns for the MY Make Along 2019! Belleoram is an oversized pullover designed with the name “Belle” and the scottish gaelic pronoun “orm” in mind (orm is pronounced ˈɔɾɔm). Cables are worked to form a ring and short rows and decreases are worked on the inside of the rings to shape the sweater sides. Sleeves are continued from the sides and knit top-down. From the outer cable ring, the body is knit flat sideways to the body centre. At the body centre, the stranded colourwork is knit in the round with two steeks. The other side of the body is work and joined to the first half with Kitchener stitch.

You may or may not require the same needle sizes. Please swatch and block to determine your needle sizes.

You will also need:

Removable markers; stitch markers; scrap yarn or spare needles or interchangeable cables to hold stitches; darning needle (I love cross stitch needles for this!) and sturdy lace or sock yarn (or sewing machine or crochet hook) for reinforcing the steeks; grosgrain ribbon and needle and thread to finish the steek edge along the hemline and collar if desired.
