Basic Skills Necessary:

  • knit
  • purl
  • simple increases and decreases
  • short rows
  • ribbing

Pattern Description:

Indicum(Latin for indigo) is a beautifully simple pullover with a minimalist embellishment of corrugated ribbing, a simple two-color technique. This light sweater is made from two fingering weight yarns -- choose one for the body, then use leftovers of your favorite sock yarn to add at the collar and hems, either a similar shade for a subtle accent, or a variegated yarn for a unique look. Indicumis simply knit from the top down, all in one piece, with very little finishing. The scoop neck is formed with short rows; the sleeves are knit down from the underarms and end in very slight puffs. This lovely piece is perfect for transitional weather, layering, and playing with color.
