Remember the best times are yet to come

Manic Street Preachers

This design was inspired by the wonderful autumn colours of the trees around beautiful Perthshire where I used to live. The pattern itself based on skeleton leaves which I’ve always had a fascination for! The sweater body and sleeves are knitted bottom up and in the round. They are then joined to create the yoke. A few decrease rows are worked at the armscyes for ensure a close fit. The yoke patterning is then worked with decreases included in the last few rows for shaping. Short rows are added to raise the back neck ensuring a better fit. My Autumnsong Beanie pattern knits to the same gauge so can be a wearable swatch to ensure gauge is met or to try your own favourite colour combinations.

• 1 set of each of 2.5mm, 2.75mm and 3mm DPN (or preferred method of working in the round) for sleeves. You may prefer to switch to shorter/ longer needles as circumferences decrease/ increase.
