This sweater is knit with Wool of the Andes Bulky. That means it knits up VERY quickly. Colorwork? Intarsia? And quick? YES! And the end result was a sweater I think is very beautiful. Hats off to Nina, for a lovely, well-written, and easy-but-looks-complicated pattern!
The body is seamless, and the sleeves knit separately in the round, until the two parts are joined for the raglan shoulders.
Knit on the collar, do the belt, et voila!
Please excuse the dirty mirror. My teenage son cleaned the bathroom, and guess what he forgot to do?
