Herbalist Swoncho

Herbalist Swoncho was inspired by my love for nature and its medicine. Bees, flowers, and leaves are the main focus of the motif that flows throughout the body of the garment. A project that takes more time and patience than a basic sweater, but the large gauge helps move things quicker and the finished object is well worth the effort! Knitted with DK yarn, this swoncho will keep you extra cozy when the freezing winter temps dip. It’s worked from the top down, in the round - as all of my other colorwork sweaters, it’s a joy to try on easily as you work, to make sure you get the perfect for for the unique you!
