Designer's Description
I've always been fascinated by space and travelling there, by the sheer dimensions of our solar system and what's beyond. The pattern at the yoke reminds me of the planetary orbit. Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn... Also, it's been a lot of fun to knit. When you use Amble by The Fibre Co., the wonderfully soft fabric will make for a sweater you’ll love to live in.

When you use Amble by The Fibre Co., the wonderfully soft fabric will make for a sweater you’ll love to live in. Amble is perfect for sweater knitting and is a blend of merino and alpaca with just bit of recycled nylon included for increased durability. Planetary is a top-down, seamless knit which allows you to try your sweater on as you knit. The yoke includes 6 planet-like orbs created created with a “Bubble Stitch” pattern. This pattern is a great choice for the advanced beginner interested in knittinga first or second sweater.
