Lunenburg by Amy Christoffers is a top-down colorwork yoke sweater. It is a relatively simple colorwork sweater and it comes in a big range of sizes which is wonderful. The pattern is clear and well-written and the colorwork is entertaining and fun. There are even some purl stitches thrown in for texture along the way. I love everything about this sweater and I think you’ll love it, too.
I asked Amy for permission to make kits to go along with her sweater and I am honored that she said yes! Photo Credit: The photos of Amy in the sweater are provided and owned by Amy Christoffers.
Amy Christoffers description:
"Lunenburg Pullover is worked from the top down in the round with a ‘Bohus-ish’ stranded yoke. The fit on this garment is easily adapted to suit your taste- choose +/- ease to suit your style. Finished measurements are actual measurement around chest/hip after blocking. The length is slightly cropped- if you wish to add additional length to the body please plan your yarn purchases accordingly and be sure to have a little extra of your MC yarn. (From BWC - Please purchase a size up for the kit or purchase additional skeins if you are adding length to your sweater.)
The yoke pattern is charted and there is short row shaping after the color work."
