aspen / Pam Allen

We love Aspen's fitted look, with simple (but striking!) colorwork in its round yoke. The joy in colorwork sweaters is always in choosing whether to go with subtle monochrome, or bold contrast. To add to the interest in the yoke, this pullover is a cool hybrid of bottom-up and top-down knitting: The body is knitted from the bottom up, with stitches cast on provisionally for the sleeves, all the way to the neck, and the sleeves are picked up from the waste yarn and knitted down to the cuffs.
