Ghost Horses is a top-down circular yoke sweater featuring all-over stranded colorwork. This sweater was a dream I have had in my mind for a few years; I love the ring of horses galloping across the yoke, and the fading colors of Spincycle’s Dirty Little Secret against their solid light grey Wilder was the perfect match for my western dream sweater! The pattern is written to be easily customizable in sleeve and body length. Options are given for short or long sleeves (or elbow length, like mine!)

As always, the yarn listed is just a suggestion! I love Spincycle and highly recommend it, but you can substitute any yarn that you can get gauge with and like the fabric created! Please feel free to join my Ravelry group to chat more about my patterns, mods and yarn substitutions!

MATERIALS
Yarn:
Sample uses 
C1: Spincycle Yarns Wilder, 100% American Merino Wool

C2: Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool, 100% superwashed American Wool

Needles (suggested sizes)
Note! Needle size is suggested only, you will need to swatch to determine the needle size needed to achieve gauge.
Main: US 4/3.5 mm 
Ribbing: US 2/2.75 mm

Gauge:
24 sts and 32 rounds over 4” 10 cm after blocking with larger needles in colorwork pattern 

You should always knit your swatch the same way that the pattern is knit—in this case, in the round. Block your swatch as you will your finished garment and allow it to dry fully before measuring.

stitch markers, scrap yarn, darning needle
