Balou sweater

€6.00 Tax included

design : Trin Annelie

Description

"Balou is a classic circular yoke colorwork pullover to get cozy in on chilly days. You can choose between a crew neck and a turtleneck according to your preferences. With a simple colorwork design with very little long floats, this is also perfect for a first colorwork sweater project."

- Trin Annelie

The Pullover is worked in the round from the top down, starting with the colorwork yoke. Short rows are used to raise the back and improve the fit at the neckline. Once colorwork and shaping are complete, the work is separated for body and sleeves, which are both finished in the round.

GAUGE

19 sts and 26 rounds in 10 cm/4" on larger needle in stockinette and colorwork, worked in the round (blocked).

Row gauge is especially important for this design, since it defines the yoke depth and therefore the fit around the shoulders.

NEEDLES

4.5 mm/US 7 circular needle (100 cm/40" 80 cm/32" and 60 cm/24") or size needed for gauge.

4.0 mm/US 6 circular needle (80 cm/32" and 60 cm/24") or one size smaller than gauge needle.
