Celeste Sweater Man

SPROG
Regular price 45,00 DKK
Please select a language first

The Celeste Sweater Man is worked from the top down and has a circular yoke. First a folded neck edge is worked, then the yoke is worked in the round in the charted colorwork pattern using 5 different colors. Short rows are worked after the stranded pattern has been completed to raise the back and create a nice fit. The body and sleeves are worked in the round in stockinette stitch and finished with a rib edge. 

Please note that stranded knitting often needs to be worked on a needle 0.5-1 mm larger to maintain the same gauge as the stockinette stitch sections worked in one color. For this reason, you need to work a swatch in both the stranded colorwork pattern and in solid stockinette stitch before starting your sweater. 

This pattern contains charts with the colors of the blue Celeste Sweater Man alongside blank charts that can be colored with your own chosen colors.
