Forestland is a top down and seamless circular yoke sweater that knits up quickly with DK or worsted weight yarn. This pattern calls for just two colors of yarn and is suitable for stranded colorwork beginners since the motifs are simple, rhythmic and easy to knit. Inspired by forest foliage: ferns, pine boughs, cedar - open to knitters’ interpretation. :)
