This free pattern is for intermediate knitters or beginners who want a bit of a challenge, although Marly does a very good job to clearly and with accurate execution demonstrate a step by step guide through this tutorial. One of the techniques to make this adorable knit sweater is the Slip Stitch Striping sequence Pattern and she also changes the color of the yarn in easy to follow steps all the while reminding the viewers to keep following the pattern notes for the particular size you’re creating.
At the start of your Knit winter sweater the Straight needles are used followed by the Circular needles for that extra space and ease and to finish up, around the leg sleeves, Marly uses her expertise to show how the Pointed needles are used to delicately form the little sleeve.
Finally, the spare yarn is ‘Bind off in pattern’ with a tapestry needle and all the loose ends are cleverly interwoven inside the garment.
