Indulge in the beauty of nature with Peperomia, a stunning sweater that features a unique organic motif inspired by the beautiful Pacific Northwest forests. As the motif progresses up the body and sleeves, it gradually breaks apart to reveal the gorgeous background color, creating a truly one-of-a-kind look.
Peperomia is knit seamlessly in the round, making it a breeze to construct. The v-neck design is both flattering and comfortable, with raglan decreases adding shape to the overall silhouette. The pattern also includes instructions for closing the underarms using kitchener stitch for a seamless finish.
To really make this design shine, use hand-dyed yarns with a bit of speckle or tonality to complement the organic quality of the motif. Peperomia is a truly captivating sweater that is as beautiful as it is easy to knit.
Peperomia is knit in the round, seamlessly and bottom-up: begin by knitting the lower body of the sweater placing the live stitches onto waste yarn while the sleeves are also partially knit. Once both sleeves and body are worked, all stitches are placed onto one long cable and raglan decreases are worked to form a flattering v-neck. Stitches are then picked up around the neckline to knit the v-neck ribbing. Finish your sweater by closing the underarms using kitchener stitch.
