Cor Sweater PDF english version
Cor Sweater is a feminine seamless yoke sweater with a two-color fair isle pattern. It is a rather easy two-color pattern since it only contains of two colors and only 6 stitches in one color at a time. The sweater is knit top down, so you can easily adjust the length at both body and sleeves. By knitting short rows, the neckline is slightly higher at the back. I recommend using the Italian cast on and the Italian bind off method for this sweater, but you might as well choose other methods. I also recommend using the Magic Loop method for knitting the start of the sweater and the sleeves, so that you will need less needles knitting this sweater. The sweater is supposed to be worn with approx. 0-10 cm of positive ease.
