  • Etamine - Sweater

    Etamine is a delightful spin on a colorwork yoke, inspired by dreaming of a huge garden full of plants. Worked from the top-down, you start with a comfortable folded neckline before moving on to short rows to shape the neck. The colorwork yoke is worked with increases and decreases to create the flower petals.

    After the armholes, you split the body and sleeves, and it's pure stockinette joy: The body with one color in the round, topped off with a lovely ribbed hem. Lastly, you knit the sleeves with generous ease before gathering them in for the cuff.
