Notes From the Designer:
Ichor is defined as "the fluid that flows like blood in the veins of the gods.” I think of this definition and how it relates to knitting this sweater. Yarn flows. Knitting gets in your veins. The process of knitting stranded colorwork is the fluid in the process of making this sweater. When you put this all together the name Ichor for this sweater is perfect. I hope you enjoy the process of making this sweater, as well as the lovely garment you so skillfully will produce.
- Click the Videos tab to watch a secret to knitting fairisle one-handed.
- It is very important to wash and block your swatch to check for color fastness before beginning your project.
- The pattern is written with an increase of 8 stitches in the middle of the pattern for the fitting of the shoulders and bust. The pattern is designed to fit well above the bust and stitches are added to fit the bust area.
- Three times in the top section of this sweater, you will find some short row sections. These rows are found to help the sweater fit better. The back of the sweater is designed to fit over our shoulders and shape the shoulders. I recommend using the German Short Row Method. Watch a video here to learn this technique.
- This sweater can be made in several lengths. The sample is a cropped length of 10.5”/26.7cm length from the bottom of the arm hole to the BO. When you get to the main body of sweater, the length needs to be determined before knitting so that you can make your "hue" sections the same size.
- Be sure and check the various charts as you go to keep the stitch count accurate. The sizing figures can be used to adjust for your correct fit.

“Color is a power which directly influences the soul.” ~Wassily Kandinsky
i was struck by how lovely this sweater is, along with the obvious attention to detail. i can't wait to knit it!
Breath taking color! I ordered copper in place of pink as the contrasting color. I can’t wait to knit this up! I’m a confident beginner and confident it will be gorgeous.
I really liked the colorwork design of this sweater. I would probably make it with longer sleeves and body length. I've done colorwork knitting before so that won't be difficult.
This is just the pattern to give encouragement to sit and knit!!
This sweater is cleverly designed. I’m sure I’ll enjoy wearing it.

Due to covid issue, it creates transportation problem, it will affect my interest to continue purchasing.
Colour and design is really nice.
im looking forward to making this sweater pattern this winter it looks beautiful and i love making fairisle sweaters. in going to try her tip from the video. all the videos are so healpful
The sweater looks nice and one of these days I would love to make it. The only thing that scares me is the length. I know Chandi likes to make cropped sweaters but it would be nice to see the sweater in it’s normal length.
I haven’t tried fairisle stitches yet, but I’m really looking forward to this pattern with the help from the video tutorial that Chandi and Tim have made.
Beautifully written pattern that I look forward to making. Yarn and patterns from Expression Fiber Arts are always first class.
I love all EFA patterns as they are so well written and explained and it feels like such a wonderful gift to be given the opportunity to make something this lovely.
The pattern stripes are gorgeous but the neck isn't right. Too high.
