Our most recent newsletter featured the stunning circular yoke detail of our newest pullover sweater pattern. And it inspired some of our readers to ask for more details. We are very pleased to announce that Corrie is now ready to be introduced!
Shown here on Haylie, the sweater is worn with 2 inches of positive ease in the bust. We also photographed the sweater on a couple of other models so that you can decide for yourself what kind of fit you’d find most comfortable.
The pattern constructs the sweater from the bottom up. It is knit in the round and uses corrugated ribbing to create that lovely color work that highlights the circular yoke and cuffs.
We were so delighted with the possibilities that the yoke provides for beautiful color work, that we knit up several samples in various colorways. Pictured above the sweater is knit up in Evergreen as the main color, with Mean Mr. Mustard, Atlantis and Diamonds and Rust Mewesic.
Pictured here, the sweater is knit up in Norwegian Wood as the main color, with Mean Mr. Mustard, Passionate Kisses and Brickhouse Mewesic as contrast colors.
And lastly, pictured here, the sweater is knit up in Diamonds & Rust as the main color, with Mean Mr. Mustard, Blue Bayou and Brickhouse Mewesic as contrast colors.
The 13 shades of Mewesic present myriad options for color combinations that will flatter any complexion and enhance every wardrobe.
We hope that you’ll take a closer look at this pattern and consider it as a possible pattern for a Rhinebeck sweater. There are still several weeks of knitting time before the Sheep & Wool Festival in upstate New York and we’d love to see you modeling yours there!
