  • Hypata - Sweater

    To see nature awaken after winter, to see the leaves begin to grow on the trees and to see the flowers appear and blossom bring me joy, and I imagined this sweater with leaves that grow on the bottom of the sleeves. 

    This sweater is worked from the top down, seamless, with a round neckline and dropped sleeves. The construction starts at the shoulders, with some short rows. The back and the fronts are worked separately back and forth up to the armholes, and then everything is joined to work the body in the round. The sleeves are picked up around the armholes and also worked in the round with stranded colorwork.
