Designed by Courtney Kelley, Jenny is a Bohus inspired yoke sweater with a comfortable amount of ease, making it easy to wear while still looking elegant. This traditional yoke sweater is knit from the top down, so is fun to knit right out of the gate. There is a subtle gather at the wrist and just a little bit of flounce, for an extra dash of femme. Make a matching hat! If you find yourself with quite a bit of leftover yardage of the contrast colors, consider working up Patsy, the matching hat Courtney designed for the collection.
The colorwork portion is charted in the sample colors. An alternate chart made up of symbols for you to color in is provided if your selected colors differ from those as shown. Please take the time to swatch and match the gauge for a well fitted garment.
