Notes: Foxthoughts is a colourwork pullover with a unisex fit, knit from the top down with a circular yoke and minimal finishing. The yarn is held double throughout; the seamless colour changes in the colourwork are made by marling, i.e., changing the colours of the held-together strands on each row. The colourwork charts are worked with “MC” and “CC; each of these will be made up of 2 strands of yarn in different colour combinations. Refer to the colour key for the row by row colour changes. Alternatively, choose your own colour combinations.
