The Jelly Roll Sweater was inspired by my Jelly Roll socks, with simple but effective colorwork, a round yoke and easy fit, this sweater would make a great beginner colorwork project.

Three colors of fingering weight yarn (see yardage chart below). Three colors of fingering weight yarn (see yardage chart below). Samples shown are knit in Primrose Yarn Co. Sophia MCN in the colorways Glamping, Space Suit, Blackout and Misfit (modeled sweater) and Space Suit, Ink Blot, and So Fetch (sweater with Fisherman’s rib).

Choosing colors:
This sweater calls for three different colors (although you are free to experiment with more than three); two colors for the colorwork yoke (CA and CB) and a third color for the main body and sleeves. I strongly recommend choosing colors with high contrast (in both color and tone) for the yoke. I prefer using the lighter color of the two for CA. The main body will look better when knit with a tonal or semi-solid color, because highly variegated colors tend to flash and pool.
