Only two more designs to share with you! First up, Weightless.

What: Weightless / Own pattern
How: Circular needle 3.25 mm
From: Ocean by the Sea Quill + Frida Fuchs Mini Füchse Sock, 228 + 34 g

Weightless is a sweater that is worked top-down, seamlessly. It has a loose round yoke with a delicate feather pattern.

The sweater has long sleeves and the body is straight with no waist shaping.

The neckline, cuffs and hem are worked in garter stitch.

This was one of the last designs I worked for Strands of Joy. I wanted it to be light and delicate while keeping it really simple.

While the finished yoke can look complicated it's worked with just two colors and there are no long floats, making this ideal for a beginner colorwork knitter. And keep in mind, you don't have to work the whole thing at once, one round at a time is enough.

The sweater has no shaping after the yoke (expect for sleeve decreases) which also makes this really beginner-friendly.

Weightless is loose and easy to wear. The garter stitch edges give it a little something extra.

The yarn I chose for this design is light fingering. It makes this a light-weight sweater and really comfortable to wear. The main color is lovely yarn that's all plant-dyed.

You can find all the info on the design below. Some of the photos were taken by Laine for the book and some we snapped ourselves. I think it's great to show the same sample on different size people. This and all the other women's garments in the book were worked in my size, M2.
