The Koivua Light is a design I made in celebration of Do Ewe Knit’s 10th anniversary- happy anniversary Karen and team! Please check out their shop for kits using their exclusive Spincyle color Ewenicorn! I paired mine with Cormo Sport in Yellow Tulip from Moondrake Yarn Co for a super sunny and happy knit.

The Koivua Light is a sport weight variation of my popular Koivua sweater. This version is more fitted with slightly different colorwork and features options for long or short sleeves. Koivua Light is knit top down in the round and features a colorwork yoke and hem design.
This sweater is easily customizable to provide the best possible fit. Please see the schematic for full fit details. Instructions are included in the pattern to make length adjustments.
My sample is knit in Moondrake Yarn Co. Cormo Sport and Spincycle Dyed in the Wool.
