‘Dreaming of Wales’ by Dieuwke van Mulligan. Kit contains yarn, pattern and cotton Triskelion project bag. Choose your size and colour options from the drop-down boxes.
The sweater starts at the shoulders: First the shoulder saddles are worked, then stitches are picked up for the front and back, which are worked flat until the underarm. The work is then joined in the round, and the body is worked to the hem.
Stitches are picked up for the sleeves, and the sleeves are worked to the cuff. Finally, the held sts for the neckline are picked up again and the neckline is worked.
