Specs & Details
It’s a striped fabric made from exactly one yarn. The subtlety and cleverness of this is something we really love. Using two strands of Jade Sapphire Sylph, we make the stripes first with one strand, then two strands carried together.
The shape is as elemental as imaginable—it is worked from the bottom up, in the round, until dividing to work the top part back and forth. There is plenty of ease in this pullover, and drape.
Rowan Summerlite 4ply is a gauge-matching, yard-for-yard substitution for Sylph! Read more about it in the articles linked below.
