Newbold

$8.00

Newbold is a classic lopapeysa-inspired colorwork yoke sweater with bold, graphic motifs. The pieces are worked in the round from the bottom up and then joined at the armholes to work the yoke. The colorwork patterning begins before the join – short rows raise the back neck after the colorwork and yoke decreases are completed.
