Valley Yarns Ambrosia is a modern pullover with a high hip length, dropped shoulders, and striking honeycomb cables circling the lower body. Easy to style, Ambrosia will transition from work to weekend and add sophistication and instant elegance to any ensemble. This pullover is knit in the round from hem to underarm, where the back and fronts split to be completed separately before joining at the shoulders with a three-needle bind-off. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole edge and worked in the round to a three-quarter length with the body honeycomb motif echoed above the cuff. Valley Yarns Westfield gives this sweater a warm, lush feel as well as a subtle sheen with its blend of Merino wool, yak, and silk. Choose from a beautiful palette of heathered jewel tones and neutrals and knit a new favorite sweater to add to your handmade wardrobe. Cable patterns are both charted and written out.
