Refresh your summer wardrobe with the Sorbet Sweater. Designer Margaret Hubert has played with delicious colours and contrasting textures to create a wonderful light-hearted design. By holding together one strand of Scheepjes Mohair Rhythm with a strand of Whirl or Whirlette, the yarns of the Sorbet Sweater blend beautifully. Colour changes are softened and the simple crochet stitches take on an attractive marled appearance in this easy-to-wear oversized sweater.
The Sorbet Sweater pattern can be found in YARN – The After Party 144, which contains the written instructions plus chart and schematic for sizes S through to XXL. A handy guide to suggested shade combinations of the specified yarns is also included.
