Diagonals and Squares Sweater

 

2016-02-14(4) Rich Colourwork Jumper 1 (ed)

I designed and made the Diagonals and Squares Sweater for my husband. It makes every cold winter day a lot more snuggly! The patterns were taken from Alice Starmore’s Charts for Colour Knitting. The base colour is a chocolate brown, the background gently varies its colours between a pale blue and pale brown. This garment is knitted seamlessly with circular needles bottom-up.

Difficulty: intermediate, reasonably experienced
