Goldenfern is a simple, seamless circular yoke sweater with colorwork details on the body and sleeve cuffs. This design is inspired by ferns lit aglow by the sunset on an evening walk in the forest. Knit from the top down, you can try on this sweater while it’s in progress, for your ideal fit. This yoke is very easy to knit - it includes a little bit of raglan shaping before the body and sleeve separation, to make for a great fit in the shoulders. After knitting just a few inches / centimeters of the body, the fun part begins - the ferns! Using 3 colors of your choice and going from lightest to darkest, create a fading effect as you knit the colorwork . This design also lends itself well to a single contrasting color or you can use a gradient yarn. With cuffs that echo the body design, you might find yourself knitting your sleeves a little faster than usual, so you can knit more of the fun colorwork at the end!
