Presque Isle

$8.00

Presque Isle is worked in the round from the bottom up. Choose a circular length between 24–60” (60–150 cm) to best suit the size you are knitting. When working the yoke, you may want to change to an even longer circular if the stitches do not fit comfortably on your needles.

After the sleeves and body are complete, the pieces are joined to work the yoke. Raglan decreases shape the yoke, then short rows are worked to raise the back neck. Stranded colorwork with integrated decreases is knit from a chart, and then a ribbed crewneck completes the sweater.
