    7 items left

    Get £5.00 off the Lyon Sweater Knitting Pattern when you purchase a minimum of 10 balls of Sunday by Sandnes Garn.

    The Lyon Sweater by PetiteKnit is knitted from the top down. First, the upper part of the back yoke is created using increases. The shoulders are then made by picking up and knitting stitches along the slanting sides of the back yoke. After that, the remaining yoke is worked back and forth, and then in the round on a circular needle. The body is knitted in the round on a circular needle, while the sleeves are knitted in the round on double-pointed needles or on a circular needle using the Magic Loop technique. Finally, the sweater is completed with a folded neck edge that has built-in double knitting. The Lyon Sweater features stripes throughout.
