Sothern in Knit Picks Wool of the Andes Worsted

Sothern is my ode to vintage style. I loved the fair isle motif, but waned an updated fit and feel. The sweater body is constructed from the bottom up in the round, with the sleeves worked flat. The sleeves and hem are done with a fairly deep 1×1 rib. This piece is worked with no shaping for a generous fit with 2-4” of ease. The high neck line and small peep back is added for ease of fit and comfort.

Here is some more info about the pattern:

The color combination of each pattern can be adjusted to fit your preferences. Go loud and proud in neon or subdued and relaxed in pastels.
