This Holiday Sweater is the classic type of sweater to wear it during winter holidays. The combination of red and white and the “fair isle” pattern on the yoke is getting you there for sure. It’s true that most beautiful Fair Isle sweater are knitted, but if you are not a knitter and you still want this kind of sweater, this is for you.
This Holiday Sweater is a top – down sweater worked with a round yoke. We will start to work from the neck, working the yoke first and then separate the sleeves and work the body and sleeves individually.
This sweater has a closer fit and the length of the sweater and of the sleeves can be easily adjust on your taste, by just adding more rows.
I used for this Holiday Sweater Starlight from Hobbii. Starlight is a lovely, bulky wool mix twined with reflective thread. The reflective thread adds a subtle mixed look to the yarn, and will reflect strong sources of light in the dark .
Starlight is easy to work with and works up fast, so you will finish this sweater in no time.
The yoke of this sweater is the one that gives that Holiday flare and you know what, is super easy to make. It’s just about a combination of simple stitches like, linen stitch, single crochet and V stitch, but the result is amazing.
Another advantage of this sweater is that is worked top – down. so no seams and easy to adjust the length of the sweater and sleeves. Also, is available in 4 sizes from Small to 1 X Large, so you have a lot of good reason to make it. It will be a great Christmas Gift!
I hope I convinced you to go on Hobbii Website and download this pattern. You don’t have anything to lose because it’s free.
