Louise’s sweater is a project that has been in the making for some years. It started out with Caroline asking Astrid to design a sweater for her, then Louise took over and has been wearing the original size medium for 3 or 4 years and Astrid just re-knit the design in a size small to make it fit Louise.

The sweater is worked in our Le Gros Lambswool in three colors and a lovely introduction to stranded knitting for a first project.

The sweater is knit in stockinette stitch, bottom-up in the round.
First the back and front are knit from the hem to the armholes. Then the sleeves are knit from the cuff to the armholes.
Then the back and front and the sleeves are assembled for the yoke, worked in stranded knitting.
