This is the DK version of the GOLDA sweater.
Since the Aran weight is not for everybody, I invented this Golda DK sweater. The look very much remains.
I made samples knitted with one of the welthase DK yarns or two stranded with welthase kidsilk and weltahse yak lace oder weltahse bfl pearl.
Golda is modern and pure with the clearness of scandinavian design.
The feminine feature of a lace yoke comes along in such a rustic size, that it marries up quite modern in a timeless classic.

Golda DK is knitted top down in one piece in the round.
All body increases do appear naturally out of the lace part. The pattern is written not charted.
The Golda DK sweater is meant to have a good ease at the shoulders and a neater fit at the bust and the upper arms.
Take your time to do some body measurements to get your perfect size. I do offer more sizes than usual in order to accomplish a good fit for all kind of body shapes. Invisible optional increases at the end of the lace pattern will reflect i.e. a stronger back, a bigger bust size, more space for the upper arm etc.
