Caribou Hills is a colorwork yoke sweater worked from the top down. This sweater was inspired by my memories of sunsets in Alaska in the winter- a phenomenon called alpenglow. This design is intended to be worn with 4-10” 10-25.5 cm of positive ease, depending on your personal preference. The sample pictured is a size 3, worn with 8” of positive ease. You will find full fit details in the included schematic, as well as a coloring sheet to help you determine your color choices!

This size-inclusive design is easily modified in sleeve and body length to create a perfect fit.
