Fachwerk

2 items left

Fachwerk is a top-down sweater with a flattering neckline. The colourwork yoke makes this an interesting knitting project. 

  • This sweater is seamless and completely in the round from the neck down
  • Stitches for the sleeves are put on hold on stitch holders or waste yarn while the body is completed. These stitches are then placed on needles to knit the sleeves.
  • Worn with 2.5-5 cm / 1-2” of positive ease
