Encircled Giveaway! September 30, 2017 07:22 25 Comments
The newest collection of patterns from Knit Picks, Encircled, is now available! In it you'll find 10 colorwork yoke pullovers, including my Spanra Pullover. I also really love the Baldrun Pullover and Phased Yoke Pullover by Kerin Dimeler-Laurence and Sunwheels Pullover by Deepika
About the Spanra Pullover:
The body and sleeves of the Spanra Pullover are knit from the bottom up to the underarms, where they are joined for the yoke. The whole sweater is knit in the round on circular needles or dpns, with a few short-rows worked just below the colorwork on the yoke to raise up the back neckline.
Although the colorwork pattern appears to be complex, it's pretty simple, using traditional fair isle techniques and only 2 colors per round.
The solid color sections knit up quickly, as they're worked entirely in Stockinette stitch. There is waist and bust shaping on the body, and increase rounds on the sleeves to keep things somewhat interesting, while still being mindless enough to work on while watching something more engaging or participating in being social.
Knit Picks sent me 2 copies of the printed Encircled book, so I'm giving one away for FREE to a lucky blog reader. All you have to do is leave a comment below before Friday to enter.
