ORLA is a top-down yoke sweater featuring a captivating texture enveloped in cozy garter stitch.
Get fascinated by the textured yoke using elongated stitches where the yarn is wrapped multiple times around the needle when a stitch is knitted, cables without the need for a cable needle as well as bobbles that are worked on the right side only. The design is worked seamlessly in the round and uses DK weight yarn for extra comfort. Alternatively you can hold two strands of light fingering weight yarn together which gives you DK weight as well.
The pattern offers 7 sizes, ranging from 85-145cm/34-58inches bust, including 10-15cm/ 4-6 inches of positive ease for a feel good fit.

There’s also a matching cowl available, the ORLA cowl.

Orla starts at the neckline and is then worked seamlessly from the top down in the round. The textured yoke is worked, followed by short rows to shape the neck. After that the body and sleeves are separated and worked one by one in the round. The main pattern is garter stitch.
