You too can knit your very own version of the gorgeous Undersong Sweater designed by Lily Turner in Lily's very own brand Wisbone in the Flax Flower Fingering. Pictured are the colours Carbon and Cameo but you could choose any combination of Lily's gorgeous colours.
CONSTRUCTION : The Undersong Sweater is worked seamlessly from the neckline down. Short rows are worked back and forth to shape a better fitting garment. Once enough depth is reached on the yoke, sleeve stitches are placed on hold and the body, which incorporates a large area of colour work, is worked in the round down to the twisted rib. There are two options of sleeve shape - a Seventies style bell and a gathered Bishop. Sleeves are worked top down and in the round, including a colour work band. Finally the cuffs are worked in the same twisted rib.

S I Z I N G : Due to the large colour work motif, there is 6.6”(17cm) difference in body width between sizes. This creates a large amount of positive ease and a single size can fit a wide range of body shapes. In the illustrations I am wearing a Size 1 and have a 34” bust - so 7” / 17cm of positive ease finished measurements for five sizes.
