Violas - stalwart flowers that are part of the violet family and can weather the occasional late Spring frost or snow - usually appear in the garden in mid-April. They are full of bright, rich, gorgeous, purples, yellows, fuchsias and more contrasted with dabbles of white or cream within the same petal. These rich color contrasts are echoed in the Silk Blend Shocking and Silver colorways.
This short-sleeved circular yoke pullover is worked in the round from the top down.
Two shaping choices are provided for the lower body. The first is a no-shaping option where the lower body is a straight tube having the same number of stitches at the lower edge and bust. The second choice is a slight A-line option used for the sweater shown with a hip circumference 2¾” to 4” larger than the bust circumference, depending on size.
