Vesica Piscis pullover is based on a well known mathematical symbol of intersecting circles that makes an appearance in many cultures and many contexts. The sheer simplicity of this motif makes it perfect for the first time sweater colorwork project.

The sweater is worked top down, entirely in the round, without seams. Some waist shaping is added to give it just a hint of shape. Hem and cuffs use a smaller variation of the vesica motif.

The pattern can be purchased separately or as part of the ebook. If you previously purchased the ebook, the pattern will be added automatically, no purchase required. The ebook contains a matching hat and cowl.

I recommend non superwash wool - I used BT Loft which is perfect for stranded knitting.
