Golden Moon is my most exciting colorwork sweater to date. You need three colors all the way from top to bottom, but no need to worry: only two colors are used at the same time. With colorwork, bobbles and simple shaping, this sweater will keep you happily knitting for many hours.

Golden Moon sweater is worked easily from top down in one piece; it has simple round yoke and slightly boxy body with a gently cropped hem.
