Carson Pattern Booklet by Julie Hoover

Carson Pattern Booklet by Julie Hoover

A bold diamond motif embellishes the hem and cuffs of a distinctive pullover. The body and sleeves are worked in the round from the bottom up to the underarm, then the sleeve caps are worked flat and set into the yoke with seams inverted to highlight the unusual shaping: a combination of fashioned and invisible decreases create a handsome gambrel form on the back while the front is a classic saddle shoulder. The colour work and unusual construction ensure a satisfying level of challenge in the knitting.
