I got a mail from Sabine and I quote:
“Knus” – Hug.
For me it means to hug autumn instead of complaining about the weather etc.
Being wrapped in something light, warm and cosy – isn´t it something we all want/need?
I agree 😊
A round yoke sweater worked from the top down with the possibility to adjust the length of the sleeves and the body.
The work starts with rib at the neck and afterward short rows for a lowered neckline. The increases for yoke and arms create a rounded yoke. After finishing the yoke, the sleeves are separated on waste yarn, and the body is worked from the armholes to hem and then a rib is worked before bind off. Work the sleeves one at a time by putting the stitches back from waste yarn to the working needles and work in rounds with decreases to the cuffs. The cuffs are worked in rib before bind off.
