As autumn breezes give way to winter chills, woolen sweaters become a daily staple. This top-down sweater is sure to become a favorite pullover throughout the season. The neckline begins with a touch of frost as Fair Isle snowflakes begin below the collar and increase in both size and color intensity around the shoulders. Mini-skein gradients create an eye-catching colorwork effect, while waist and hip shaping create a flattering fit. Colorful detailing along the bottom of the sweater body and sleeves give this garment a unique look while making it interesting to knit. Cozy up to the fire and grab your needles… it’s time to get Frosted!
