Wend

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

The rich, flickering colour of Sincere Sheep Cormo Sport and the long, shifting changes of Spincycle Yarns Dyed in the Wool play up and down this modern top. Designed to work with Dyed in the Wool’s colour changes, Wend is worked flat in four pieces, so there’s no worry about trying to match up stripes at the neck. This top features exposed seams, slight A-line shaping, integrated cap sleeves, and a flattering sweetheart neckline. To make Wend, you will need to know how to knit, purl, and seam. The pattern includes an illustrated tutorial for the German Short Rows used in the sleeve and shoulder shaping, and directions for the M1 and twisted yarn over increases used in the pattern are included in the Abbreviations section. Pattern instructions are written only.
