This adorable tunic-length yoke sweater nods to traditional Norwegian colorwork sweaters. The eye-catching colorwork is comprised of a small pattern repeats, making them easy to memorize and to knit - there is no need to catch your floats. Often when working top-down yoke sweaters, the exciting part ends when you finish the decorative yokes. Subtle enough to compliment the yoke, yet interesting to knit, the textured diamonds throughout the remainder of the sweater will hold your attention, and you'll never want to put this project down.
The Kindersweater is knit seamlessly from the top down. After completing the yoke, the sleeves are divided from the A line body. The neckband, hem, and sleeve cuffs are feature corrugated ribbing and an I-cord edge for a professional finish.
