Autumn Flowers is a top-down seamless colour work sweater. Around the neck is cast on and short rows worked to shape the shoulders and lift the back. Then increases are worked concurrently with the colour-work yoke. Once the sleeves are separated, the body is knit down straight until a simple rib hem is worked. The sleeve stitches are placed back on the needles and the sleeve is worked with decreases and finished with the rib cuff. The neck band is picked up and again a rib is worked to complete the sweater.

The colour work section has three colours but is worked in only two colours at a time and there are no long floats (the longest float is five stitches long), making it an easy fun sweater! The body and arm lengths can be easily adjusted to make a perfect fit for you.
