Robinia Sweater by Anne Wentzel

Robinia Sweater by Anne Wentzel

If you, like me, are partial to a bit of soft "fluff"in your yarns and are looking for something that knits up to chunky tension, look no further! This new Robinia Sweater by Anne Ventzel is absolutely your must have knit. It uses supersoft Isager Eco Soft Yarn and combination of 3 yarns (one of them Silk Mohair ) for the contrasting colour. 

ROBINIA SWEATER is a soft and feminine sweater with an elegant contrast colour pattern worked in stranded knitting. The sweater is worked from the top down. First the back and front yoke are worked back and forth, then the two sections are joined for the body, which is worked in the round. Stitches are picked up and knitted along the armholes and the sleeves are worked down and finished with cuffs in twisted rib. Short rows are worked both on the front and back yoke and on the sleeves to create a really nice fit.

Below this post you will find my suggested yarn bundles for this sweater. The pattern you can purchase direct from Anne's website here Robinia Sweater .
