This circular-yoke sweater is seamless, and require almost no finishing with the exception of small detail: eyes and noses on foxes' faces are embroidered with duplicate stitch. The foxes magically come alive after that!
BTW, I also have Fox Tale mittens and gloves, and Arctic Fox (for kids) with the same style foxes.
You will need:
- long circular needles 2.5 and 3mm, shorter circular 2.5-3 mm needles for the sleeves, stitch markers, tapestry needle;
- fingering weight yarn for 30(32, 34, 36, 38, 40, 44):
1200(1450, 1700, 1950, 2200, 2450, 2600) yards,
of which about 4/5 is for the main color, and 1/5 - for all other colors used in the yoke.
The sizes in the pattern are true with the suggested gauge only. If your gauge deviates significantly from 25 X 30 in 4'', knit a different size.
