knit.wear Fall/Winter 2018 features Modern Fair Isle with 5 incredible sweaters & tunics to fit any woman's wardrobe. The Pepper & Snow Pullover utilizes stranded colorwork to create the chevron patterning across the bust and the color changes at the yoke, sleeves & hem. Due to the simplicity and compressed amount of colorwork, the intermediate knitter should be quite comfortable creating this sweater with a few short rows while making from the top down. Short rows also create a tapered lower hem.
