Humulus [Isabell Kraemer]
Humulus by Isabell Kraemer
Humulus is worked seamlessly from the top down. First, some short rows are worked back and forth to create a higher back neck and then the round yoke is worked top down to sleeve separation. Some last short-rows are worked to finish the yoke shaping right before sleeve stitches are placed on hold, then the body is worked in rounds down to the hem. Finally, the sleeves are worked top down to the cuffs.
