For this stranded colourwork design I was inspired by the joy of spring sunlight streaming through stained glass, and my love of geometric forms. I really love how Art Deco designers and artists like Frank Lloyd Wright brought these elements together in fresh compositions that are both beautiful and practical.
The body of the jumper is worked top-down in the round, beginning with a tubular cast-on and 1x1 rib in CC1. Short rows are worked in stockinette to raise the back neck, then MC is joined and colourwork begins – MC and CC2 are striped, so only two colours are ever worked per round. When the colourwork is finished, body and sleeves are split and worked in MC. A smaller colourwork motif is worked at the cuffs and hem, then we continue with only CC1 for 1x1 rib.
