Around and around the ice skaters go, frolicking in the midst of winter gardens and snow drifts…

On Frozen Pond features fun and easy mosaic colorwork using only one color per round. No floats and no hassle!

This is a quick knit sweater that is sure to be a go-to favorite with its superior-fitting hybrid yoke. Try it on as you go so that you have just the fit and length you want and no surprises! That’s the beauty of top-down and seamless.

On Frozen Pond is worked top-down, in the round, and totally seamless, with short rows raising the back neckline. Yoke construction is a hybrid between circular and raglan for ease of colorwork and for best fit. Short rows add a bit of length to the back section. You can actually raise your arms without the whole sweater riding up!
