Dryades Knit Sweater – A Fetchingly Cozy Sweater
Designed by the talented team over at Lion Brand Yarns, this knit sweater is worked in the round, from the top going downwards. It is a perfect project for knitters with intermediate skills.
The pattern comes in 6 sizes. The available sizes are small, medium, large, XL, 2XL, and 3XL.
To make this sweater, you will need the Lion Brand’s Cotton Candy Blend Yarn. It is a soft and squishy light-weight yarn made of 52% polyester and 48% cotton. The yarn is perfect for summer garments and accessories as well as baby projects.
You will also need a size US 6 circular knitting needle. That is a 4 mm needle if you are using the metric system.
Moreover, you need to utilize the ssk decrease and yo increase techniques when working this piece. The ssk or slip one, slip one, knit two together is a basic left slanting decrease often seen on lace patterns.
We have an illustrated tutorial on the ssk if you want to learn it. You can find the tutorial here: Learn How to Make a Basic Left-Slanting Decrease (SSK).
The yo or Yarnover increase is another technique frequently seen on lace patterns. It is a vertical, standalone increase. You can learn how to do the yo here: Learn the Open Yarnover Increase (YO).
