Instructor: Carol Bixby
Level: Advanced Beginner
Time to start thinking spring! We have two samples of spring/summer sweaters.
The Lake Arrowhead Tee is made in one piece from the bottom up. The hems are worked flat, then joined in the round to make the body. It is split at the sleeve opening, then the bront and back are seamed at the shoulders using a three needle bind off. The shoulders are shaped using short rows. The stitches for the sleeve and neck ribbing are picked up after the seaming and knit in the round.
Spring Vibes is a light weight a-line top with drop shoulders knit in one piece from the bottom up. The bottom ribbing is a one color brioche hem and the rest of the sweater is knit with a stockinette stitch, with a decorative brioche front inset. The sweater is knit in the round to the sleeve openings, then the front and back are worked separately. The brioche inset widens in the front; the back is all stockinette stitch. The shoulders are joined using a three needle bind off. The sleeve openings are finished with a small one color brioche hem. Some knowledge of the brioche stitch is helpful.
