The Jupiter Crop is a cute, top down sweater inspired by our handsome Rooster, Jupiter! Allover colorwork keeps this design fun and flying off your needles! A few rounds with 3 colors to carry add a tiny bit of challenge to keep things interesting. Top- down design means you can try this sweater on as you go, so you can alter the length as needed for your perfect fit.

Knit in 5 colors Retrosaria Vovó, a beautiful non-superwash sport weight Portuguese wool. Many thanks to Rosa Pomar and her wonderful team for the support in this collaboration! You can find kits on the Retrosaria website.

Sizes:
Measurements given are for the finished garment. This sweater is designed to fit with 0-5” 0-13 cm of positive ease at the bust. Decreases are made before the hem and cuff ribbing for a gently-fitted waist and sleeve. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, you can omit the decreases to create a straight silhouette. Note that any modifications will alter the yardage requirements. See schematic on page x for full fit details.
