Que Syrah Syrah





worsted weight yarn


A simple but delicately textured pullover for spring, Que Syrah Syrah from longtime Friend of the Flock Thea Colman is just the thing for transition-season knitting. A drop shoulder silhouette featuring tons of ribbed texture and delicate lace cables, this stunner of a pullover is easy to wear and easy to knit, and makes the most of Forge's balance of loft and stitch definition. Que Syrah Syrah is knit from the bottom up in the round, and split at the armhole for the fronts and back. Shoulders are joined and the sleeves and collar are worked in the round from picked up stitches. 

A note: Que Syrah Syrah is available as a digital download and a yarn+pattern bundle here at H+W.com, but 100% of pattern sales revenue goes directly to the designer, just as if you bought the pattern directly from their website or on Ravelry. We think this way, everybody wins: you get an easier, more straightforward experience as a consumer, our indie designer friends get to realize the maximum revenue from their work, and you get another great way to access new designs in our yarn outside of our pattern collections.
