2024 Sweater Knit-Along - Gib I and II



Join the Amazing Threads 2024 Sweater Knit-Along to knit the Gib Sweater!  Two different shapes/cuts available (Gib I and Gib II) to fit your fit and style preferences!  Both sweaters are knit from the top down (meaning you can try it on as you go and add length to suit your own personal style!), beginning with the collar. The yoke is adorned with cabled raglans and the allover knit purl texture of the sweater. You will separate the sleeves placing them on hold while the body is finished and then returned to the needle, picking up stitches for the underarm for a totally seamless sweater!

*Please check the sizing and yardage information for the specific version of the sweater you are making.*
