I love images and stories about forests at night so when I found this Asylum Fibers yarn, I knew I had to use it for this purpose! This sweater is my version of a fantasy night forest. I designed it in “blendy” yarns but you can create your own night forest using the colors that you like. This yarn will be available in the Asylum Fibers booths (411 and 413) at Vogue Knitting Live this week.

Constructed from the top down with stranded colorwork, choose the bust size that matches yours for 0-2” ease (mine, above which is a 36) or a larger bust size to have a looser fit. The sleeves have been designed to also be modified for shorter arms and of course you may knit the body longer or shorter if you like. There are optional short rows for the yoke.
