Belle sweater by Önling, knitting pattern
Knitting pattern for Belle sweater in stranded knitting
Belle is a pretty sweater in stranded knitting, inspired by the Faraoese knitting tradition. We have knitted the sweater in several colour combinations and it has been exciting to see how the chosen colours unfold in the pattern. The pop colour is your chance to play and ad your own touch to the design. The diagrammes use light pink til illustrate the pop colour, but you can add it where you feel best.

Crochet hook for casting on
3 stitch markers
3 m / approx. 3.5 yards of contrasting color yarn.
Procedure: The sweater is worked in the round from the top down. Stitches are cast on using a provisional, crochet cast-on to allow final adjustment of the neck opening size. Short rows are worked across shoulders and back of the neck to make the yoke higher at the back of the neck. The yoke is worked with increases, and the yoke stitches are then divided into sleeves and body, which are finished separately.
