The Purls of Wisdom Sweater is a round yoke seamless pullover knit from the top-down. With just a bit of purl-stitch texture in the yoke, this sweater is ideal for a first sweater knitting project. The Fibre Co. Team designed the Purls of Wisdom Sweater to be extremely wearable with a beautifully minimalist aesthetic and well-considered details. A sweater this versatile has an infinite number of styling options: dress it up or dress it down, layer it up for a day out or wear it with your favourite pj bottoms…the choice is yours! This kit is for a solid shade version of the sweater in &Make DK yarn and can be knit in 9 sizes. Kits are also available in a colourblock version, as well as solid for &Make Aran, colourblock for &Make Aran and solid for &Make Super Bulky and colourblock for &Make Super Bulky yarns.

The Purls of Wisdom Sweater is worked in the round from the top down. You will begin by casting on the Yoke at the neck which starts with knit 2, purl 2 ribbing, and then work purled increase rounds between knit rounds. When the Yoke is finished, you will put the sleeve stitches on waste yarn or stitch holders, and then knit the body until the hem, which is worked with K2, P2 rib. When the body is finished, you will pick up the sleeve stitches and work them in the round to the cuff, finishing with more K2, P2 rib. Weave in the ends, block your sweater, and voila – your first sweater is ready to wear! Instructions for changing colours are provided in the pattern making it easy to to create the colourblocks of your choice.
