Aquilegia is a top-down, yoked sweater featuring stranded colourwork patterns inspired by the characterful Aquilegia flower. It is the sixth design in my Organics Collection, a series of designs inspired by the natural world and by other artists whose works are inspired by nature.

SAMPLE
The wearer is 5’10” / 178cm with a 37” / 92.5cm chest circumference. The sample has been worked in size L, giving the wearer 10.5” / 26cm of positive ease at the chest. 1.5” / 4cm of short row shaping has been worked below the neckband and to accommodate the wearer’s height, 0.5” / 1.5cm depth has been added to the yoke and 1.5” / 4cm of length has been added to the body and sleeve lengths.

SIZING GUIDE
This garment is graded into sizes XS (S, M, L, XL) (2XL, 3XL, 4XL, 5XL). Recommended positive ease is 4-12” / 10-30cm at the chest circumference.
Finished Garment Chest Circumference: 37.25 (40.5, 44, 47.5, 54.25) (57.5, 61, 64.25, 67.75)“ / 93 (101.5, 110, 118.5, 135.5) (144, 152.5, 161, 169)cm.

GAUGE
Using 3.25mm / US size 3 needles, or needle size required to meet gauge, 26 stitches over 32 rounds in stockinette stitch, blocked, creates a 4x4”/10x10cm square.
Neckband, waistband and cuff circumferences assume you are working 7 sts per 1” / 2.5 cm.
