Knitting Designs Sweaters

Squares, diamonds, and striking contrasts between light and dark are prominent features in many African textiles. The yoke patterns on both versions ol this pullover mimic the rotating motifs in a traditional woven fabric. In both versions, the lower body is worked in the round in mitered garter-stitch panels. The panel arrangement dictates the overall body size and shape of the zigzag at the base of the yoke. Entrelac squares, worked in either two-tone garter stitch or stripes of garter and stockinette stitch, are built one upon the other for the patterned yoke. On both versions, the V shape of the yoke is filled in with garter stitch that ends in a stand-up collar. The zippered version is finished ofl with a contrasting facing.
