Biscotte Yarns

Role Model Yoke | Pullover Knitting Pattern

This sweater truly is my most favorite addition to my knit wardrobe.  I love to knit stranded colorwork! The colorwork that I enjoy the most are small repeats where there is no concern about long floats or the fabric bunching up, and I find using multiple colors so satisfying. So, I decided to take what I love most about the autumn season (the colors), stranded colorwork (small colorful repeats), and the comfortable style of this construction (circular) to create the Role Model Yoke sweater.

Yoke « Role Model »



J'avais écrit un avis ce matin - comme quoi j'adore ce modèle et prévoyais de le réaliser - sauf que je viens de faire un rapide calcul des coûts et j'arrive à près de 300$ de laine. Je sais que la laine Biscotte est d'une qualité exceptionnelle et que la qualité se paie. Mais, désolée, mais je passe mon tour. N'y aurait-il pas lieu d'offrir une option de dessin avec la moitié moins de couleurs?

modèle superbe!

OH! Il me fait très envie... Beaux choix de couleurs aussi.
Si on souhaite un col plus près du cou, on peut ajuster ? Dans un tel cas, peut-on communiquer par courriel avec la conceptrice afin d'obtenir des conseils?
