A colour study - take a lovely hand-dyed mohair wool and mix it with two row stripes of dark blue, a lighter blue and white. The colour exposed in the variegated with the white background is so wonderful. A gold accent button on the buttonband mirrors the wonderful colours exposed.

Yarn requirements:

2(2,2,3,3) hand-dyed variegated
1(1,2,2,2) white
1(1,1,2,2) light blue
1(1,1,1,1) royal blue

The sweater is knit up on circular needles to armholes then backs and fronts are worked separately. Facings are created for the bottom band and sleeve cuffs.

This sweater has made me look at wonderful variegated hand-dyed yarns in a whole new way. Welcome colour mastery from skein to beautifully designed sweater!
