Notes:

This is an advanced beginner pattern and includes both written instructions and a chart.

This sweater is knitted in one piece from the top down. You begin by casting on for the rib collar and proceed with an increase round followed by short row shaping to raise the neckline. After that, the colourwork begins, and raglan increases are worked to shape the yoke. Once the yoke is finished, the sleeves and body are worked separately. Faux raglan seams are worked at the increases in the yoke, and there is a faux seam on the inside of the sleeves.

You can purchase items in this kit separately: Lore yarn and Project Bag from The Fibre Co.
