SOFT HEART SWEATER


Designer: Olga Putano
From the Designer:

A round yoke colorwork sweater, knitted from the top down and in the round. The construction allows the knitters to try on the sweater as they knit, to achieve the perfect fit. Lots of fun colorwork on the yoke and before hem and a tiny bit on the sleeves. Use all Sport weight yarn or hold some fluffy yarn double for the contrast color for a fun effect!
