Autumn gold is captured in our ribbed sweater.
The Technical Stuff
This ribbed sweater comes with instructions for six sizes ranging from 76/81 cm (30/32 ins) to 127/132 cm (50/52 ins) with an ease of 4 – 9 cm (1¾ – 3½ins) so it is quite fitted.
The front and back are both worked in a staggered rib pattern which creates a lovely texture. In contrast, the sleeves are done in stocking-stitch, as is the little split collar.
A two button fastening at the back ensures a tidy fit.
The top is worked in Stylecraft Life DK which comes in 100 gram balls. You can make this top from about £12 with the largest sizes costing around £15 – great value.We have chosen Mustard, a hot shade for this autumn but there is a large range of other shades available, including some with a marl effect.
Finally, we have marked this intermediate. There is nothing difficult about the stitches, you just need to keep a tally of your rows so you work the staggered rib correctly.
We’re keen as mustard on this one and hope you are, too.
