High Peak Sweater by Liv Ulven @Woodlandsknits


HIGH PEAK SWEATER is a stranded-colourwork yoke sweater knitted from the top down in the round. First the neck is cast on and worked in simple 1×1 rib and shaped by short rows. The increases are worked first in main colour and subsequently in pattern. The colourwork starts on the yoke and is continued on body and sleeves. The rib on the cuffs and hem is finished with a simple bind-off. HIGH PEAK SWEATER features colourwork detail with stylised mountain peaks and suns.

Please choose a size 10-25 cm larger than your actual chest circumference. For reference: the sample in the photos is in size 2 with 11 cm positive ease.

Manchelopi is an unspun yarn that is made 100% with Manchega wool. Its color shades and its twist-free slivers make this “cheese” a rare and high-quality material with which you will be able to create unique and inimitable clothing.

As for the thickness, due to its double sliver, it will depend on our control of the needles. If we want to knit it in two strands to make it easier for us, we would be facing a thickness of 230m / 100g (DK); on the other hand, if you are one of the highly skilled ones and you dare with a single strand, you will have double the meters: 460m / 100g (Fingering).
