Invoking the slick glassine surface of distant glaciers and the invigorating chill of winter air in your lungs, Otte invites adventure. Shelter’s stranded fabric keeps you cozy and the vital play of colors across the yoke energizes this timeless colorwork motif. Harken back to family expeditions and toasty mugs of cocoa with this seamless, unisex knit.

Construction

  • Otte is worked seamlessly from the top down. The yoke is shaped with a combination of concentric increases hidden in the colorwork yoke motif and raglan shaping after the colorwork yoke motif is completed. Additional shaping of the yoke is done with Short Rows: German Method. At the underarms, the piece is divided for the body and sleeves, and the sleeve stitches are placed on hold while the body is worked to the hem. The sleeves are then completed from the top down.
  • Two sleeve fit options are given: Fitted and Classic.
  • The body of the sweater tapers slightly toward the waist. This shaping can be omitted if a straight body shape is preferred.
