Western Rose is my first real foray into the world of mosaic knitting and I am hooked!
A deep panel of flowers in beautiful shifting color really stands out against the sophisticated navy blue heather of the stockinette body on this one. Some ridge detail at hem and cuffs adds a tiny bit of texture - and a raglan yoke, paired with a shallow folded collar gives it an updated and easy-to- wear shape.
A stockinette body means I have included lots of options for modifying the sweater to fit your body and your wardrobe, so the pattern has instructions for alternate necklines (see the test knits!), as well as how to alter width or length as needed. And I cannot WAIT to see your color combos!
Western Rose is knit from the bottom up. Sleeves are joined at yoke and then both raglan shaping and short rows are added before working the final collar.
It’s actually a very simple knit, and seemed to fly off the needles once I cast on.
The kit contains Lore from The Fibre Co. and Spincycle Dream State.
The kits will make a sweater up to 47.25”. If you would like a larger sweater you will need more skeins. You can order these separately and we will make sure that the lots match.
For a sweater finished up to 54.5” you will need one more skein of Lore
For a sweater finished up to 61.75” you will need two more skeins of Lore and one more skein of Dream State.
