Lamina is a top-down sweater with a stunning colorwork yoke that evokes the complex system of veins found in leaves. Layers and layers of leaf blades give this extraordinary design so much depth while the slightly oversized fit makes Lamina extra comfy.
Lamina is knit seamlessly from the top down. A broken rib is used for the ribbing at neckline, hem, and sleeve cuffs. Short rows are worked to slightly raise the back of the neckline. The stranded colourwork yoke is worked in the round with increases incorporated into the colourwork chart. The sleeve stitches are placed on holders, then the body is worked in stockinette, in the round, straight to the hem. Once the body is complete, the sleeve stitches are worked in stockinette to the cuff.
