If you enjoyed creating the Cat Love hat, you can indulge your love for leopard print with this yoke sweater. Roar! is SweaterFreak's leopard print pullover allowing just a bit of this flirtatious yet classic motif near the face.
The pullover is worked top down in the round seamlessly. When the yoke is finished, body and sleeves are worked separately to the hem. Create this stylishly unique sweater by choosing colors to cast on! Select neutrals or brights for a distinct and personal combination just for you. SweaterFreak recommends non-superwash wools when doing colorwork so that the floats on the back will lock in to provide a gorgeous garment for years to come.
Kit includes pattern (PDF & printed copies included) and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here.
