Guthrie is a round yoked sweater knit seamlessly from the top down with an all-over colorwork design and 3/4 length sleeves. The bottom and sleeve hems feature a simple cable ribbing pattern. Instructions are given for cropped or full body length versions, and the sleeves can also be knitted to a longer length if desired.
This design is named for iconic folk singer/songwriter Woody Guthrie, one of Caitlin's favorite artists. The rustic nature of the yarn and the mix of patterns in this design remind me of American folk art and inspired Caitlin to name this sweater for the king of American folk music.
