Lansdowne Pullover by Laura Chau Designs | Lansdowne is a casual turtleneck pullover worked in Lorna’s Laces Haymarket, a super soft worsted weight yarn spun from Blue Faced Leicester wool. The hem and cuffs feature contrasting Latvian Braids, while a colourful chest motif provides a fun graphic punch. Waist shaping is worked along slipped stitch dart lines on the back for a flattering fit. When using hand-dyed yarn, you can minimize abrupt shade changes by alternating skeins. Work 2 rows from one skein then 2 rows from another, twisting yarns together at the beginning of the row. It is recommended that you introduce the second skein after completion of the Latvian Braid on each piece.
