Oles Kit

About Oles

Oles is a top-down jumper, knit in the round. After the neckline, short rows are added to raise the back and increases are worked at either side of the sleeves. Then sleeves and body are separated. You continue working on the body and later pick up the stitches left on hold for the sleeves and knit those from the underarm to the cuff. Colourful short-row stripes are added throughout.

Kit contains:

  • PDF of Oles by Belen Fernandez
  • 3 (3, 4, 4) [4, 5, 5] full-size hanks of Lore for the main colour and 1 mini hank of Lore for each of the 3 contrasting colours
  • Free Project Bag from The Fibre Co.


The photos show the sample in: MC – Confident, C1 – Happiness, C2 – Gentle and C3 – Heaven.
