Pattern Description:

Lysa (a Swedish verb for light) is a Swedish-inspired round-yoked pullover with a simple, modern colorwork pattern. The twinkling stripes encircling the yoke and sleeve cuffs provide endless possibilities for play with color, and are a perfect way for an adventurous beginner to dip his or her toe into the colorwork pool. The sweater is constructed from the top down, in the round, with (optional) short rows lowering the front collar in a flattering way and subtle waist shaping providing for a nice fit.
