Aldous by Isabell Kraemer is knit seamlessly from the top down. Worked in stocking stitch it has a single Twisted Braid down the back of the sweater. Isabell is perhaps known for her use of short-rows in her designs, they add shape to the neckline making them fit beautifully!
Isabell has given instructions to knit Aldous with a straight body or an A-line.
Isabell knit her samples in Independence Wool Texas Tweed Lite and Q-lana QL ungeschminkt, both are sport weight yarns and may not be readily available. We love Retrosaria Vovó for this design.
