Circle of Life is inspired by life awakening again in the spring - the first tips of the hyacinths breaking out of the ground, the buds on the trees getting bigger and bigger. The comfortable circular yoke sweater features stranded colorwork, Roosimine, and lace, with each section of the yoke representing one stage in the life of a plant.
The sweater is knit seamlessly in the round from the top down. After the sleeve stitches are placed on hold, the lower body is pure stockinette sailing down to the hem, as are the sleeves. Hem and cuffs feature corrugated ribbing. The pattern provides optional bust darts to ensure a great fit across all sizes and body shapes.
