Nivalis is inspired by snowdrops, the first spring flowers coming from under the snow. The pullover is worked top-down in the round with a floral pattern around the yoke. The colourwork pattern can be worked as a simple stranded colourwork or as a more intricate pattern of floats. To get as close to a prefect fit as possible the pattern comes in 18 sizes!

For the colourwork with floats it is important to choose sticky woolen yarns, ones that will hold their shape in floats well. Before making the final choice, swatch with different options from your leftover stash to see how different yarns will behave. 

You can hold a lighter weight yarn double or use one strand of a heavier weight yarn instead. For inspiration, check my previous designs with floats and Ravelry projects of fellow knitters.
