Forsythian is knit seamlessly and from the top down with options for short or long sleeves. A simple colorwork yoke design makes this pattern approachable and enjoyable. Inspired by my favorite time of the year, when all the trees are starting to sprout their leaves and the forsythias are in bloom - after long winters in Maine, it’s an exciting sign of Spring when these beautiful yellow flowers appear.
