Crocus is a soft, warm and refined garment.
The floral shapes of the yoke recall the petals and pistils of the wonderful winter flower from which we were inspired and from which the pattern takes its name.
It is a top-down, circular yoke sweater. Gradual increases are made in the yoke up to the sleeves that will be put on hold onto holder or scrap yarn and then resumed later.
This way there will be no seams.
The yoke is made up of a single chart that contains the increases.
The yoke is embellished with a refined lace stitch motif with bobbles.
We used the wonderful “Fine Lace” yarn in alpaca and merino together with a silk|mohair yarn both from Rowan.
The two yarns together give a delicate melange effect and an elegant look.
Crocus comes in 12 sizes (from 85 to 182 cm 33.5 to 71.6“ bust circumference).
The size guide and the table on PDF will help you choose the fit you prefer.
