Subtle details have been used to bring a contemporary look to this sweater by Fiona Alice. Designed for a loose, comfortable fit, it features a box pleat at the top of the lower back section, along with two little pleats above the cuffs. The sweater is worked in a number of pieces, which are joined using the three-needle cast-off to produce visible seams on the right side of the garment. Kallio was originally published in Issue 166 of The Knitter. The original sample was knit in Saltaire, an aran-weight yarn from Sirdar. Fiona chose Sandnes Garn KOS for her own personal sample.
