The Aspen Yoke Sweater (SPP 20)
This lovely yoke sweater was Meg’s first contribution as a guest designer to Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Wool Gathering publication. Later, it became part of the book Meg Swansen’s Knitting (out-of-print). It is knit in unspun icelandic two-ply by pulling from the inside and outside of the wheel. The sweater is worked in typical EPS (Elizabeth Zimmermann’s Percentage System) style: body from lower edge to underarm; sleeves from cuffs to underarms. Sizing 40 (42, 44). Plain collared or turtleneck. Techniques include: Short-Row Wrapping, Stocking Stitch Weaving and Long-Tail Cast On, plus the directions for EPS. 4 pages.
