TROPFEN

Tropfen is a comfortable circular yoke sweater with 12.5-20.5 cm / 5-8.25” positive ease featuring a stranded stitch pattern with bobbles at the upper body.

It is worked seamlessly from the top down in rounds. You start with the half-twisted neck ribbing and then you work the circular yoke. The knit stitches of the neck ribbing are continued as slipped knit stitches at the body and are integrated into following stranded stitch pattern. After the stranded stitch pattern, you work some short rows back and forth to create the back neck shaping. Then, the sleeves are separated and body and sleeves are finished separately.

Design: Julia Exner | Yarn: Annabel Textiles
