SABELA
by Isabell Kraemer

Designer Description:

Sabela (a variation of my own name ;)) encapsulates everything I love in a sweater. It has an effortless, modern and straight shape, some ease and, of course, stripes! which are my favorite way of adding color to a garment.

Sabela is worked seamlessly in rounds from the top down. First some short rows are worked back and forth to shape the neck. The yoke is shaped by using a modified version of the contiguous set-in sleeves method developed by Susie Myers. When the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve stitches are placed on hold and underarm stitches are cast on. The body is then worked in rounds to the hem. The sleeve stitches are then picked up again to work them in rounds top down to the cuffs (instructions for both short and long sleeves are provided). Neck is left unfinished.

Isabell knit her sample using a different yarn.  We were inspired to pair Sabela with Merino d"Arles by Barunka - a test knitters for Sabela. Learn more about her project and see other of her gorgeous projects on Ravelry: https://www.ravelry.com/projects/barunka/sabela .
