Description
This yoke sweater is knitted in the round, top-down and with positive ease. The charts are based on childrens’ drawings and all count multiples of 5 or 10 stitches. They are knitted throughout the garment. But of course you can play with the sequence according to your own taste or for instance only ‘colourwork’ the yoke. Depending upon size, charts are repeated to reach the length you desire for body and sleeves. Nupps are added to the yoke to cover up the increases and give it texture.
