"Lovebirds" by Kate Oates

A little birdie told me…that you need him on a sweater with his true love! This array of geometric colorwork is worked seamlessly from the top down with yoked increases & short row shaping both at the shoulders and the bottom. The gentle A-line shape of the body combined with extra length at the hem complements curvy and straight body types alike. Options are provided for two different body and sleeve styles: classic stockinette or a simple cable along with short or long sleeve lengths. Instructions are provided to work body inside out for less purling, if desired. One to four inches (2.5-10 cm) ease is recommended. Colorwork is charted. Because a few rounds feature longer floats, this pattern is recommended for knitters with prior stranded colorwork experience.

Karen chose Dyed in the Wool in the color "Saddest Place" and Crave Caravan in colorway "Authenticity" for her Lovebirds sweater.

For the cap sleeve version, you will need:

Color A: 2(3,3,3,3) {4,4,4} (4,5,5) skeins of Crave Caravan

Color B: 1(1,2,2,2){2,2,2} (3,3,3) skeins of Dyed in the Wool

For the long sleeve version, you will need:
