  • Product Description

      Designed by Isabell Kraemer (Ravelry Link) Beaufort 5 is worked seamlessly from the top down. Both the back and the front are worked in a textured pattern evocative of the effect the wind makes on the ocean surface.

      These kits feature the original yarn for Beaufort 5 - Lanivendole's A Pure and Simple Wool, a bouncy single ply sport yarn made from 100% Italian wool. It is spun in a highly skilled mill at the Alps foothills, and then lovingly hand dyed. 

      Knitting starts with the cast on of the shoulders for the back. Once the short row shaped shoulder slope is done, the back is worked flat to underarm. Shoulder stitches are picked up to work the front to the same length.

      At underarm both fronts and back are joined to work the body top down back and forth to the bottom hem. An I-Cord edging is worked next.

      Sleeve stitches are picked up around the arm openings to work the sleeves in plain Stockinette stitch top down in rounds to the cuffs.

      • All the yarn required for the size and shade selected.
      • A printed copy of the Beaufort 5 pattern
