ROBINIA SWEATER is another classic and beautiful sweater by Danish knitwear designer Anne Ventzel. Robinia is a soft and feminine sweater with an elegant pattern worked in stranded knitting. The sweater is worked from the top down. First the back and front yoke are worked back and forth, then the two sections are joined for the body, which is worked in the round. Stitches are picked up and knitted along the armholes and the sleeves are worked down and finished with cuffs in twisted rib. Short rows are worked both on the front and back yoke and on the sleeves to create a really nice fit.
Here we work Robinia in an exciting yarn kit consisting of 4 different yarn qualities. You knit 3 strands together for the main color (Önling No 16 + 12+ 10) and 2 strands together for the pattern (Önling No 20 +10). This results in a gorgeously soft sweater with lots of possibilities for a melange color effect
