The Knitting for Olive Waffle Sweater, knit in pure silk mohair, is soft and light, and features an easy-to-make allover eyelet ribbing design that is neatly finished at the hems with a deep ribbed neckline and edges. The all-around relaxed ease at the body, sleeves and neckline compliments the sweater’s airy texture.
The Waffle Sweater is worked seamlessly from the top down with 3 strands of the Soft Silk Mohair held together. Short rows shape the back, and the raglan construction adds an element of design to the lace pattern. The length of the body and sleeves can easily be adjusted.
Waffle Yoke and Waffle Stitch Pattern are charted only.
