Description

Inspired by the frost-covered grasses of November, Little November features a stranded colorwork motif designed to evoke the feeling of that quiet month. Two contrast colors are used in the sample, which requires some rounds of knitting with three colors. The design would also be wonderfully striking worked in only one contrast color, which would only require working with two colors. Little November is worked seamlessly from the top-down with a circular yoke. The yoke is entirely charted with written instructions for the body and sleeves.
