Our newest kit is for a bottom-up and cleverly yoked sweater called Little Twigs! We have selected 7 fantastic colors from which to choose in our Home Worsted Weight yarn. The design is created by French designer (living by way of Latvia), Melody Hoffmann. Melody is known as @bmandarines on Instagram, which is a very popular feed. The pattern for Little Twigs is clearly written and the interesting yoke treatment is created with slipped stitches. It is not difficult. It looks way harder than it is.
I think you will love this sweater and our BWC kit to create your own Little Twigs.

"Little twigs is a yoke sweater worked from the bottom-up. You start off by knitting the sleeves (though that’s totally optional) then cast on for the body.
You simply knit in the round until you reach the underarm section. There are a couple of short rows at this point to elevate the back a little bit and make the yoke portion sit better on the shoulders. Then you attach the sleeves to the body by simply knitting a round. A few more short rows, and then the fun part begins. Just remember to loosen up your tension, or go up a needle size if you’re a really tight knitter otherwise the slipped stitches will be all crunched up."
