Alvar Yarn Set (Featured in Northern Lights)

Write a review

amirisu

A pullover with stitch work that gives you a sense of the beauty of order.
This stitch is inspired by Alvar Aalto's Finnish Hole. It features English-style shoulders, and by making the armholes on the front body longer than the back body, the seam on the back becomes an accent, making the back style look beautiful.

Knit each part using back-and-forth stitching and stitch. After finishing all the parts, I will bind it. Look at the surface and use the scoop-to-stitch method to close both shoulders, sleeves, both sides of the body, and the bottom of the sleeves.
