Fog Fall is a simple sweater for all seasons.

The ¾ sleeves is for the last days of summer, when summer blends into the first fall, or for Spring.
In Winter, the ½ sleeves version can be worn with a long-sleeve underneath.

The sweater is suited for knitters who are going for an easy, but never boring project to showcase those beautiful gradient colors. Nearly all the shaping is done by simply knitting straight, but combining Stockinette with Garter triangles on shoulders, neck edge and center front, making use of the simple knitting rule that Garter will pull together more than Stockinette. So basically, all you need to know is to knit and to purl.

Only a few short rows at the shoulder, a 3-needle-bindoff for the sleeve stitches at the underarm (which you could as well bind off normally and sew together), and a few decreases … so you will enjoy a mindless knit for most of the time, back & forth, following stitch markers for the triangle borders, and pure Stockinette in rounds from underarm to hip. The Garter front neck triangle is mirrored at center front, for a slightly rounded hem.

Yardage:

  • For the ½ sleeve version, you will need 1020/ 1140/ 1260/ 1380/ 1500 m of a (Light) Fingering or Lace yarn in 4-5 similar colors.
  • 80-100m more for the ¾ sleeves version.
