Peperomia features a unique organic motif inspired by walks through the beautiful deciduous forests of the Pacific Northwest. As leaves fall and cover the forest trail they break apart and return to the soil. Peperomia's decaying motif is inspired by this organic breakdown, as the motif progresses up the body and sleeves it slowly breaks apart to allow for the main background color to take center stage. This motif is especially beautiful when knit using hand-dyed yarns with a bit of speckle or tonality which only lends to the organic quality of Peperomia.
Peperomia is knit in the round 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.
