With 20 sizes to choose from, beautifully simple Woodsmoke is the basic round-yoke sweater for anyone from baby to adult. It is a well-fitting wardrobe staple and the perfect canvas for a gorgeous yarn. Woodsmoke is knit seamlessly from the top-down in the round. The circular yoke includes short rows in the larger child and adult sizes to lift the back neck. A cleanly fitted sleeve tapers to a fitted cuff. This pattern is written at a gauge perfect for sport weight yarn or the very popular fingering weight held with silk weight mohair combination.

Woodsmoke is a very simple, straightforward sweater that would be perfect for a beginner knitter’s first sweater or a perfectly relaxing project for a more advanced knitter. The pattern is clearly written and easy to follow and results in a beautiful sweater you will reach for time and time again.

This pattern uses the German Short Row method. You can find a tutorial for this technique here.
