Inspired by Art Deco architectural motifs Criterion is knit seamlessly, top-down and features stunning new colorways Moët, Sidecar, Bee's Knees and Jazz Age custom dyed by Ali of Explorer Knits & Fibers in delicious fingering-weight cashmere merino. 


Ideal for first time stranded colorwork knitters, Criterion's Art Deco inspired yoke doesn't require catching any floats until the very end of the motif. The pattern features video tutorials demonstrating a clever float-catching technique, how to knit German Short Rows and a nifty new quick & easy bind-off to make it fun for everyone no matter your skill level.
