Dots is a charming, a-line, easy to work sweater that uses a timeless polka dots motif. It's perfect for your first time colorwork project - grab your two favorite colors and cast on!

The sweater is worked top down seamlessly in the round, with no finishing - you can try it on as you go and once you bind off, you are done! Matching hat lives here. The pattern comes in 11 sizes and contains two sleeve options - standard tapered sleeve and a more modern relaxed bell sleeve shown here.
