Cumberland Falls

$8.00

Cumberland Falls is worked in the round from the top down. After working the collar, stitches are cast on to work a steek, and the yoke is worked in the round. The body and sleeves are worked in the round to the hem and cuffs. After completing the sweater, steek stitches are sewn and cut and stitches are picked up to work the buttonbands. The steek is hidden in the folded band. We only recommend using 100% non-superwash wool for steeked garments.

When setting up for the yoke, a few things happen at once: Casting on the steek stitches, joining for working in the round, and placing markers for the raglan increases. Raglan increases occur on every MC stripe pattern round of the yoke; the charted colorwork rounds do not have increases. After dividing for the body and sleeves, the colorwork and MC stripe pattern is continued as set.
