PATTERN DETAILS

A tribute to the landscape and weather of England's Peak District, Laddow is a yoked sweater worked in the round from the top down, featuring stranded colourwork. Inspired by techniques from Bohus Stickning, the yoke is worked with a combination of knits and purls to blend the colours into a hazy moorland vista. Worked in a traditional jumperweight yarn, this sweater brings joy to cooling weather and darkening evenings, while the blended colourwork is a forgiving canvas for experimenting with your own seasonal palette. The shallow yoke will suit most body shapes, while gentle side shaping discretely hugs your curves for a flattering fit. The cast-on and bind-off have been carefully chosen for their properties, so give them a go if you haven't tried them before and pick up a new skill! (There is a Wool + Bricks group on Ravelry for questions, support, and hand-holding if you need it!)
