Jennifer Steingass has a new pattern. The yoke pattern is gorgeous.

Forestland is a top down and seamless circular yoke sweater that knits up quickly with DK or worsted weight yarn. This pattern calls for just two colors of yarn and is suitable for stranded colorwork beginners since the motifs are simple, rhythmic and easy to knit. Inspired by forest foliage: ferns, pine boughs, cedar - open to knitters’ interpretation. :)

You can purchase the pattern on Ravelry.

Take a look at all the finished sweaters on Ravelry. There are some great colour combinations.

Join the Pom team in exploring one of our favourite designs! Our follow-up to Knit How takes the straightforward raglan-sleeve pullover as a blank canvas and walks you through all the ways to make it your own. We offer blueprints for 8 distinct raglans and coach you through choosing perfect-for-you necklines, hemlines, ribbing, stitch textures, and fancy raglan increases. And, of course, we show you how to create jaw-dropping colour combinations.

Our raglans are designed to empower improving knitters with customisation skills, but also to free advanced knitters to fly through stressless shapes, easy customisations, and the joys of colourplay. For the truly adventurous, we even provide a formula to design your own raglan! Let’s all get out our sketchbooks and dream together.

That is Beth sitting in the back seat. Dad, Beth, Boscoe and Lucy had to run an errand. When Boscoe got in the back Lucy jumped into the front. I guess Lucy wanted dad and Beth to distance themselves😘

Always enjoy your blog and all the knitting and yarn, but love it when you include pictures of the dogs.

What a lovely collection of sweater designs. I especially like the sweater at the top of your post. And, sweet pup riding shotgun! She stole the entire post. ;)
