written instruction:

I wanted to knit a circle yoke pullover with a snowy and frosty cable pattern, like rime ice (freezing fog) on branches and snow-covered trees. In north Japan, rime ice and snow cover trees thickly and build hulking shapes, which are called snow monsters. I have knitted voluminous snow monster cables and needle-shaped rime ice cables.

冬景色みたいなセーターが欲しいなあと思って作ったパターンです. 私の住んでいるドイツでは, 気温がキュッと下がった冬の晴れた朝, 森の中を散歩すると, 無数の白い氷の針に木々が覆われた, 遠目に見ると森に粉砂糖を振りかけたような, 幻想的な光景が見られます. 夜の間に霧が凍って細長い針状の氷ができるのです. 白い針に覆われた枝のようなケーブル模様があったらいいなあ. もう一つのケーブルは, 日本の樹氷みたいに, 雪と氷にすっぽり覆われた木々のイメージでボリューミーなものにして, 二つのケーブルで丸ヨークのセーターを編みました.

Quería tejer un jersey de canesú con un dibujo de trenzas que recordara la escarcha congelada que se forma en las ramas y los árboles cubiertos de nieve. En el norte de Japón, la nieve y la escarcha se amontonan sobre los árboles y les dan una forma enorme – los llamamos monstruos de nieve. He tejido trenzas en forma de monstruos de nieve voluminosos y trenzas que parecen las agujas de los árboles cubiertas de escarcha congelada.

This pattern can be found in issue 10 of Laine Magazine.

Snowy Forest is worked from the top down in the round.

The circle yoke pullover was designed to feature a deep yoke with bold cables. The pattern comes in two different length options: cropped and regular. The sweater is shown in two different versions: one made holding a strand of each sport weight yarn and silk mohair together, the other made with one strand of worsted weight yarn.
