Junction Sweater by Andrea Mowry



A quote from Andrea:  "I am constantly learning, especially when it comes to knitting! So I wanted to create a sweater that would have some new techniques to learn and combine. I love playing with color and texture and this pullover has got it all! A classic circular yoke sweater that helps build your knitting skill set with simple two color brioche and stranded color work."

The main color yarn used for this pattern is a light woolen spun yarn. Please note that if you are substituting a worsted spun yarn the yardage should be similar, but you will use more grams. I recommend using the yardage as your guide and buying an extra skein if you are concerned about running short. I love how light, yet warm, a woolen spun yarn is and find they give a similar result to what I might expect when buying a ready to wear sweater. For the contrast color, I let my yarn choice do the work for me! Instead of using a solid or multiple solids to create a shift in colors, the yarn I chose has long gradual changes in color that add excitement during the knitting process and add interest to the finished garment.
