The sample was knit using one main colour and 3 different contrasting colours (sometimes using up to 3 strands of yarn per row for the colourwork). If you don’t feel that this is your cup of tea, the pattern offers a different chart to knit this sweater using only 1 contrasting colour for a result that is different but just as lovely!

Also, the pattern comes with instructions on how to knit an A-line or straight body.
