Into the woods, the sweater :)

Melody @bmandarines invites us to put to put a little of the serenity of the forest on our needles and after the cowl and the socks, here’s the jumper version of “Into the Woods”!

The yoke version is a fairly simple top-down yoke jumper that features this so adorable stitch pattern (a video tutorial is provided in the pattern to demonstrate how to knit this stitch).

The original sample features a gathered hemline which is quite flattering when the jumper is meant to be worn over high waisted skirts and dresses. But you can skip that part for a more “traditional look”.

Melody has chosen a very gentle harmony with poivre et sel” and “poivre blanc“.

Clari-Anne @littlearrowfibers‘s version in Gilliatt “poivre blanc” and “goéland”.
