Notes from the Designer:

Fennmont is one of those sweaters that’s all about the process: the process of knitting a top-down, yoked sweater, of enjoying the feel of a luxury yarn in your hands, of watching the subtle color shifts as you work your way through a color gradient. A simple texture pattern keeps things interesting without getting in the way of the color play. Treat yourself to a fun, new apparel piece this spring, and enjoy the time spent working on it. You might even find yourself knitting more than one!

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a tutorial on how to make the provisional cast on, how to separate the sleeves from the body, and how to work the knitted cast-on method used in this pattern. 
  • The original version of this sweater was made with our Twisted Tweed Sport yarn and is shown in colors A) Deep Sea Blue, B) Sea Blue, and C) Light Sea Blue. The yardage breakdown was not provided in the original pattern, only the number of skeins needed: Color A: 1 skein for all sizes, Color B: 1 skein for sizes XS-L, 2 skeins for XL-2XL, and Color C: 1 skein for XS, 2 skeins for all other sizes. The original version did not include sizes 3XL, 4XL, and 5XL.
  • The original version used US size 5 (3.75 mm) DPNs or small circumference circulars, plus 24” and 32” circular needles, or size needed to make gauge, AND US size 4 (3.5 mm) DPNs or small circumference circulars, plus 32” circular, or one needle size smaller than size used to make gauge.
  • This sweater is worked from the top down, beginning with a provisional cast on. Simple increases are worked at regular intervals to shape the yoke. Once the yoke shaping is complete, the sleeve stitches are placed on hold for later, and the front and back are joined to work the body in rounds down to the lower hem. Next, the sleeve stitches are returned to the needle to work each sleeve down to the cuff. The provisional cast on is removed from the neck stitches, which are then returned to the needle to work a few short rows to shape the neck. The neckband is worked in the round. There will be ends to weave in, but no seaming.
  • If you prefer not to shape the neck, you may choose to omit the short row shaping and proceed straight to the neckband after removing the provisional cast on.
  • A generic M1 is used to note the yoke increases. You may choose to work M1L and M1R increases or to work all increases as one or the other.
  • This pattern is written as a three-color gradient. If you choose to work the pattern in one color, ignore the color change directions, and proceed with your chosen color.
  • When working with multiple skeins of the same hand-dyed color, alternating skeins every couple of rounds is recommended to avoid color pooling. If you are only working with one skein of a given color, alternating is not necessary.
  • Please read through all instructions for clarity before beginning this project. There are several things happening at the same time, so make sure you understand when/how to change colors, increase or decrease, and work a texture row before beginning.
