Noux

DSCF2547

Noux is a circular yoke sweater that is worked seamlessly from top down. The neck ribbing and a couple of increase rounds are worked first, followed by the beautiful stranded section. After that, some raglan shaping and short rows are added to ensure a better fit. Sleeves are then placed on hold and the body is worked toward the hem, adding a bit of A-shaping. The sleeve stitches are then placed on the needles again and worked in the round toward the cuffs. The pattern includes a photo tutorial for German short rows. Please note that the stranded pattern is charted only.
