Product Description

If the mountains call your name, you must answer! This sweater is worked from the top down seamlessly with a circular yoke. A bit of stranded colorwork keeps the yoke interesting while plain Stockinette stitch ensures a simple body. Colorwork is resumed on the lower sleeve to balance out the design. All in all, this is a pretty simple knit. There are a variety of fits included in this design, see below for more details on sizing and shapes.

  • Fit 1: Traditionally “female” sizing and shaping. This version will fit you best if your body fits into conventional women’s clothing comfortably and you want feminine shaping. It has narrower shoulders than fits 2 and 3.
  • Fit 2: Traditionally “male” sizing and shaping. This version will fit you best if your body fits into conventional men’s clothing comfortably and you want masculine shaping. It has broader shoulders than fits 1 and 4.
  • Fit 3: Shoulders are broader than traditionally “female” sized clothes but retains feminine shaping. This version will fit you best if your shoulders and upper arms are bigger than conventional women’s clothing, but you still want feminine shaping.
  • Fit 4: Shoulders are narrower than traditional “male” sized clothes but retains masculine shaping. This version will fit you best if your shoulders and upper arms are smaller than conventional men’s clothing, but you still want masculine shaping.
