Corolla is a top down, short-sleeved pullover with two waist-shaping options and was designed to use up those bits and bobs of DK weight yarn hanging around in your stash.

The fuchsia, orange and chartreuse sweater was knit up using Neighborhood Fiber Co. Studio DK in Charles Village (MC), Rohrspatz and Wollmeise DK in Clementine (CC1) and Marianated Yarns Playtime DK in Princess and the Pea (CC2). The charcoal and multi-colored yoke I knit up entirely in Marianated Yarns Playtime DK in Spelunking (MC) and various remaining mini-skeins (CC1 through CC12) from her 2021 Jujubee DK Advent Calendar. I cobbled together remaining cakes of Spelunking from various projects and made sure to alternate them as I knit. For the mini-skein remainders, I calculated the approximate yarn quantities needed for each motif across all sizes.

The yoke pattern is designed so that each motif doesn’t overlap into the next motif, so only two colors are needed per round, unless you decide to add in the third color as shown in the fuchsia sweater.

The instructions for the fair isle patterns are charted. Additional charts with no colors are included at the end of the pattern so that if you wish, you may color in the charts to match the yarn you’ve chosen. German short rows are used to shape the neckline after the yoke pattern is completed.
