Pale Shelter is a top-down circular yoke sweater with lovely design details: A reinforced neckline achieved by holding the yarn double, a line of eyelets tracing the sides of the body, a twisted stitch seam running down the back. The pattern comes with optional A-line shaping and two sleeve versions: regular sleeves (as pictured), and Bishop sleeves.

De Rerum Natura Antigone (pure organic linen; 260 metres / 284 yards per 100 g)
1230 (1330, 1430, 1530, 1630, 1730, 1830, 1930) metres / 1345, 1455, 1565, 1675, 1785, 1895, 2005) yards
CC yarn for optional contrast stripe: 30 metres / 32 yards
Sample shown is knit in colourway Heron. Claudia wears a size 3 with regular sleeves and 26.5 cm / 10.5” of positive ease.
5 mm / US 8 circular needle with a cable length of at least 80 cm / 32” (or needle size to obtain gauge)
5 mm / US 8 double-pointed needles (or needle size to obtain gauge)
4 mm / US 6 circular needle with a cable length of at least 80 cm / 32” (or needle one or two sizes smaller than main needle)
4 mm / US 6 double-pointed needles (or needle one or two sizes smaller than main needle)
A circular needle with a short cable can be used instead of double-pointed needles, however magic loop is not recommended for linen as it would pull the stitches excessively.
20 sts x 25 rows = 10 x 10 cm / 4 x 4” (in the round, in stockinette stitch, on larger needle, after blocking)
Note that linen stretches by 10-20% after blocking so you’ll need to measure your swatch before and after blocking. As a reference, the swatch for the sample had 22 sts x 28 rows in 10 x 10 cm before blocking.
Bust circumference: 92 (103, 111.5, 118, 124.5, 127, 136, 139) cm / 36.25 (40.5, 44, 46.5, 49.25, 50, 53.5, 54.75)” - recommended to be worn with 5-17 cm / 2-7” of positive ease at the bust.
