Product Details

This is a cozy colorwork sweater worked in panels for the body and seamed before adding sleeves and a collar by picking up the stitches. The color work is done using intarsia and made “ugly” with the clever use of snaps and standalone knitted pieces. You have the option of knitting intarsia, intarsia + stranded colorwork, or adding the image after you finish using duplicate stitch. There is one main color and 2 or 3 contrasting colors. Each size will only require one ball of each contrasting color (even if you are only using 2 contrasting colors). You only need a small amount of yarn for the colorwork, so feel free to play around and use up scraps in your design, especially if you have a lot of different colors and want to make each candle a different scrap color! Please note that the yardage approximations will vary significantly based on type of sleeve you knit and if you lengthen/shorten the torso. $1 of every pattern sale is donated to Keshet, a LGBTQ Jewish organization in Chicago.

You have the choice of adding the flames on via snaps – if you go down this route you'll need 9 snaps as well as a sewing needle and thread.
