A lace yoked pullover by Isabell Kraemer
Wool People Vol. 12
Printed pattern, 20 pages
From Brooklyn Tweed: Adelaide is an endearing pullover worked in springy Vale that wears both softly and crisply. Carrying on its yoke the nostalgic and innocent charm of collecting acorns in the woods or sand dollar shells by the shore, this is a piece that encourages a certain lightness — of the heart, of the spirit, and of the mind.
This pullover is worked circularly from the top down and separated at the underarms, then the body is worked to the hem. Sleeve stitches are picked up and worked circularly to the cuffs, with instructions included for both long-sleeves and short-sleeves. German Short Rows are used to shape the yoke; the lace motif is worked from charts only.
