First published in Issue 6 of Laine Magazine, Afterparty is worked seamlessly (apart from a few sts to be grafted at the underarms) in stockinette stitch in the round from the bottom up – first the body and then the sleeves until the underarms. The yoke is then worked featuring a simple colourwork pattern in two colours. The sweater has a slight A-line shape.
