Let's start with The Iota Sweater... worked from the top-down The Iota Sweater starts with the Iota stitch worked in the round for one vertical repeat to create a mock turtleneck. This serves to elongate the neck and create quite a striking start to the sweater. Then increases start in between the Iota motifs... these slowly shape the yoke. One beauty of seamless top down sweaters like Iota? You can try it on as you go along and make sure the yoke fits you perfectly before splitting off for the body and sleeves.
Sized to fit 31 (34, 37, 40, 43.5, 47, 50) inch busts the pattern is written with one inch of positive ease. There is a schematic for exact measurements to help you choose a size that will best fit your body shape and ease requirements. I also added in waist shaping.. though it is easily taken out if you don't require it!
This cream version is worked in Imperial Stock Ranch Erin, a 3-ply worsted 100% wool that is raised sustainably on the 30,000 acre Imperial Stock Ranch in Maupin, Oregon.
And of course, since I can never do just one version, here is The Iota Sweater, with short sleeves. It is worked in Schaefer Yarn's Miss Priss in Indigo, one of my favorite hand-dyed 100% merino worsted weight yarns.
