The Vesica Piscis Pullover is based on a well-known mathematical symbol of intersecting circles and is found in many cultures and many contexts. The sheer simplicity of this motif makes it perfect for the first time sweater colorwork project.

The sweater is worked top-down, entirely in the round, without seams. Some waist shaping is added to give it just a hint of shape. Hem and cuffs use a smaller variation of the vesica motif.  The designer recommends non superwash yarn for this project and has included a full schematic with the pattern.

The pattern can be purchased separately or as part of the ebook.  The ebook contains a matching hat & cowl and is available here.

Kit includes pattern and selected yarn. For yarn winding services, click here
