Diggory Venn
by Isabell Kraemer

Designer’s Description: Diggory Venn is a basic round yoke sweater with an easy, cute colorwork pattern around the lower body and sleeves. It is worked seamlessly from the top down. Starting with the neck ribbing, short rows are then worked back and forth to create a higher back neck. The yoke is then worked in the round to sleeve separation. Sleeve stitches are then placed on hold to work the body top down to the start of the body ribbing. The pocket lining is worked next and is attached to the lower body before ribbing is worked. Sleeves are worked top down to the cuffs last.

Although the sample Isabell is wearing is made with a different yarn, we paired this pattern with LORE from The Fibre Company.  LORE is made from surprisingly soft lambswool.  It is an honest woolen spun DK weight yarn that blooms into a beautiful knitted fabric after washing. Garments made from Lore will wear well and are perfect for everyday and special adventures alike.  LORE is not a superwash yarn and must be hand-washed and laid flat to dry.
