Notes from the Designer:

I remember the fun of looking through my first kaleidoscope… the jewel toned colors and the geometric shapes created by each turn of the tube. Such fun! I think this pullover captures that moment perfectly and offers the opportunity to completely customize the colors and the designs by choosing your own sequences and pairings. The garment is worked bottom up using mosaic knitting for the colorwork, which only uses one color at a time, making for easy but effective colorwork.

  • Click the Videos tab to watch a video tutorial on how to switch from working mosaic in the round to working it flat.
  • For the size Small sample shown, the charts were worked as follows: 4, 6, 3, 1, 8, and 10 in that order, and colors were switched in the middle of each chart to make the sweater appear more faded versus blocks of colors.
  • Chart 10 will work best in an area that does not require a full chart, such as at the shoulders or top of sleeves.
  • If you find you need to use all 12 colors, reuse the charts for the final two sections.
