Y-oak Sweater

Y-oak Sweater

I love oaks. I met this majestic tree when I was already grown up and came to live in Europe. But they are one of my favorites. I wanted to make a sweater that would be an homage to the tree and to the seasons changing and all cyclical events of life. From Summer to Winter, from birth to adulthood, and from day to night, there are so many examples. From this will and all things that change in cycles, the Y-oak Sweater was born.

The sweater is knitted from the top down. After the yoke part is done you should check the fit and adjust to match your size and style. Continue to the body and sleeves, which also can be customized lengthwise.
