The Quasar Sweater by Dario Tubiana features all-over stranded colour work. This top-down pullover looks fantastic on everyone, regardless of gender or age, with its contemporary twist on the traditional Fair Isle patterning. With a seamless construction, your Quasar Sweater will flow off the needles, and shine brightly like its namesake.

This sweater is knitted top-down, seamlessly in the round. The yoke is worked to the underarm where the work is divided and the sleeves are separated from the body. The body is worked and then the sleeves are picked up in the round and knitted top down. Short row shaping is incorporated at the shoulders right after the neckline.

The Quasar Sweater is the twelve pattern from The Almanac Series II, a seasonal guide to knitting with The Fibre Co. yarns.
