Drawing Sweater


design : Tomomi Yoshimoto


"I wanted to make this sweater so that the overlapping flowers would flutter down, or so that the flowers on the surface of the water would slowly drift away. In order to make the flower look like the image in my mind, I drew the picture myself and converted it into dots from scratch. Since the pattern is based on hand-drawings, there is almost no vertical repetition of the pattern, and there are quite a few long floats to catch. Please look at the chart carefully. The sweater is also a top-down seamless raglan sleeve sweater with a pattern on the raglan increase. I have tried to make the raglan lines less noticeable, so I hope you will enjoy knitting these as well."
