A simple, asymmetrical tee designed to accentuate the impact of gradient dyed yarns. This cap sleeved sweater has a hi-lo, straigh back and a-line, chevron pointed front. It is knit seamlessly from the top down, minimizing finishing work. Easy enough for an advanced beginner.

Yarn: You will need approximately 805 (890, 940, 1015, 1060)1110, 1170, 1285, 1330 yards of fingering weight yarn. Please note that if you intend to knit the length of the sweater longer than the specified measurements, or if your gauge is off you will need to order extra yarn. Hand dyed, gradient yarns are labor intensive to create and are therefore a little more costly. To save money on yarn, you might consider using just one gradient skein at the top of your sweater and a solid coordinate for the remainder. The sample pictured was knit using a double skein of Twisted Fiber Art’s Tasty (an 80/10/10 merino/cashmere/nylon blend) in the Maple Evolution colorway, and a solid green coordinate to make up the remaining length.
I am using Wollelfe’s gradient in the 1000m length. You can shop through their website or Etsy shop.

Needles: 16” and 30” circular needles for sizes up to 40” OR 16” and 40” circular needles for larger sizes in size US4 (3.5mm) or size required to obtain gauge. Optional needle one or two sizes larger than gauge for loose bind off.

Notions: 5 st markers, a darning needle for weaving in ends.
