Nieve

$8.00 USD

Nieve is a boxy, cabled pullover with some flattering details worked into the pattern; ribbed sleeves to slim the arms, a split hem and longer back to slim the hipline and fitted shoulders with a deep U-neckline to flatter the upper body. She’s almost seamless with just two little seams at the top of each shoulder. Fun to knit and easy to wear!

Errata

Charts

  • On pg. 6 of the pattern:
    • blank square: K on RS, P on WS
    • square with horizontal line: P on RS, K on WS
  • The legend shows that a blank square is a knit on the right side and a purl on the wrong side. Directly below that, the square with the horizontal line is also listed as a knit on the right side. That square should actually be a purl on the right side and a knit on the wrong side.
