Introducing Sorrel - the cozy yet stylish sweater perfect for fall and winter! Knit top-down and seamlessly in the round, this sweater features a yoke with richly textured linear dip stitches that create a unique and eye-catching design. Don’t worry if you’re unfamiliar with this type of stitch - a video tutorial is included with the pattern to guide you step-by-step.

To add a touch of luxury and warmth, Sorrel is knit using one strand of sock yarn held with one strand of mohair silk lace. The reverse stockinette body is knit inside out, making it easy and enjoyable to work on without having to purl the entire time.

Designed with customization in mind, Sorrel can be styled to your exact preference. Choose from 0”-6” of positive ease, cropped or full-length, and 3/4 length sleeves or long sleeves to make this sweater your own.

While the sample is a 4-color fade, feel free to get creative and use your favorite stash yarns. Choose as many colors as you wish or opt for a single speckled colorway with a complementary mohair silk to make the yoke pop.

Pattern includes written and charted instructions as well as video tutorials and written explanations for special stitches. With its unique design and customizable fit, Sorrel is sure to become a staple in your handmade wardrobe.

Yarn Description: Our samples feature SpunRightRound Classic Sock and Mohair Silk. The blend of these two fibers creates a dynamic fabric that has both exquisite softness and a cozy factor that’s off the charts! The combination of mohair + sock creates an exciting opportunity to fade several colors together as the mohair has a magical way of blending and softening the colors held alongside it, especially in reverse stockinette.

Classic Sock is a 4-ply sock yarn of 100% Superwash Merino with a strong round twist and silky texture with the slightest sheen. It blooms upon blocking making deliciously plump stitches.

Mohair Silk is a laceweight 72% kid mohair, 28% silk blend with a soft halo surrounding a strand of gently twisted silk core. As soft as a bunny’s tummy this blend lends a gorgeous halo to your finished piece.
