Ethereal Sweater

Job type Test knit

Ethereal is a lovely yoked sweater.  It is worked top-down and seamless in the round using two colors fingering weight yarn.

Pattern is written with planned positive ease added; choose your actual bust size as the pattern size and your finished sweater will be a bit bigger.

It looks fabulous in any number of color combinations, and it would also be lovely with two different yarn types, say the main color in a merino and the contrasting color in a mohair.

This sweater features a rolled neckline, vertical stripes and a slipped stitch pattern in the two-color yoke, a split hem, and textured two-color cuffs.  It is worked without waist shaping.

The pattern has been tech edited.
