It’s light, airy, warm, luscious, satisfying and delightful - like a chocolate soufflé, only without the calories! This pullover combines a modified drop shoulder with narrower sleeves and ever-so-slight waist shaping – if you so choose, along with a scoop neck for a comfortable fit while reducing the amount of volume that could make a sweater look a tad boxy. Knit up in alpaca for warmth on those cold winter days, along with sufficient drape that helps the fabric from bulking up.
Chocolate Soufflé is knit in stockinette with accents of cables in a contrasting colour and splashes of texture just above the cuffs and under the neckband.
The sweater is knit flat from the bottom up and seamed, then finished off with the neckband. The pattern is both fully written and charted.
