Knitting, SweetGeorgia

Hazel River by Fiona Ellis

Luxe cables, set asymmetrically, adorn this trapeze-swing shape sweater in ways that captivate and delight from cast-on to first wearing. With a beautifully fitted construction and texture galore, Hazel River from the fabulous Fiona Ellis, found in our Fall with SweetGeorgia Vol. 3 collection, proves timeless all year-round. She knit this beauty up in Mohair Silk DK, making it the perfect fall pullover (at least, we think so)!

The garment is knit in pieces from the bottom up and then sewn together. Shaping of the body pieces is worked by use of directional decreases placed in panels. As always, we include both the written and charted instructions for the stitch patterns, to suit any style of knitter.
