Undina and Lir






Undina and Lir are the last designs in my “Back to the Sea” collection of seamless all seasonal garments. 

Undina is a girly version of the sweater, and Lir is a boyish version.

The sweaters are entirely seamless and are worked from the top down.  What makes these sweaters unique are the cables, they are easily customizable, thus allowing you to create a sweater unlike any other.

This sweater is a unisex design. Depending on the color and options you pick, the sweater can be made more girly or more boyish.

 I am providing links to all the relevant tutorials and techniques, so if you are not familiar with any of them, here is your chance to try, and succeed.

Yarn Note: Yarn required is given for Undina.  The unisex Lir version will require slightly less.

Yardage is given as cc1/cc2/mc.  CC1= white; CC2= red; MC= blue as seen on the cover image.
