  • This is a PDF knitting pattern.

    This top-down sweater is knit with fingering weight yarn. The sample features one solid main color and one self-striping contrast color. Alternate between bands of stockinette stitch and slipped stitches for a beautifully textured fabric. You can easily customize the length of the yoke, body, and sleeves of the sweater by knitting more rounds or fewer rounds of the pattern.
