Tuntu [Knitting Pattern]

If you are looking for an interesting knitting project, you need not look any further. Teti Lutsak has designed Tuntu for Rosy Green Wool's Cheeky Merino Joy. This beautiful seamless bottom-up sweater uses various interesting knitting techniques to create a wearable sweater that you can style with jeans.

Knit in the round with a textured hem that gives the sweater a slight A-line shape. You then knit in stocking stitch to the underarm and work the sleeves separately before joining them with the body. The yoke is shaped using short rows and then knit in the textured pattern of twisted stitch cables and slipped stitch until the neckline ribbing. The transitions from hem to body and from yoke to neckline are worked with double knitting, giving this sweater a very sophisticated finish.
