Jennifer Steingass’s Arboreal is a beautiful design that brings a natural leaf motif to a yoke of stranded colorwork. This seamless sweater is worked from the top down in the round with an easy-to-follow chart. The pattern contains optional gentle waist shaping if you prefer a feminine fit, or leave out the shaping for a boxier, gender-neutral sweater. We’ve kitted up this sweater in Juniper Moon’s Patagonia Organic Merino (100% Organic Merino), a heathery 2-ply delight of a yarn that is both bouncy and soft.
Arboreal is available in 10 sizes and is designed to be worn with 1-4” positive ease.
The sizes listed below correspond to the actual measurement of the finished garment, so to achieve the recommended fit, please choose a size that is 1-4" larger than your chest measurement.

Each kit includes your choice of color pairing of yarn sufficient for the size specified, along with the pattern. We will purchase a copy of Arboreal for you via Ravelry, so you will automatically receive both a printed copy and an emailed PDF. If you would also like to have this pattern in your Ravelry library, please note your Ravelry ID (not your password!) in the "Notes" field in your cart!
Please note that this kit does not include needles. You will need a US4 16” circular needle, US4 and US5 24” or longer circular needle, and US4 and US5 DPNs (or size needed to achieve gauge). If you don't already have the appropriate needles at home, you can shop Spun's selection of circular needles here and our selection of double-points here.
If you'd like to make your kit a gift (for yourself or someone else), or if you just wish to keep your new project tidy and organized, choose either the Spun Rope Handle Bag with Pin or the Spun Messenger Bag with Pin, and we will package your purchase accordingly!
