Soldotna Crop Sweater Pattern by Caitlin Hunter

3 items left

By Caitlin Hunter (Boyland Knitworks)

The Soldotna Crop is a top-down circular yoke sweater that features stranded colorwork. I designed this sweater with Portland’s unpredictable spring weather in mind. I look forward to layering this little top over linen dresses as well high-waisted skirts and pants. The design can easily be lengthened if crops aren’t your style, instructions are included in the pattern. This design is simple enough for an adventurous beginner, yet still engaging for advanced knitters. Best of all, the cropped length and sleeveless style make this a super quick and gratifying project. The body length is easily adjustable, keep in mind changes will alter the yardage required.
