Sammelsurium

Sammelsurium is one of 16 designs in  Åsa Tricosa Ziggurats: 16 elegantly seamless knits


(available from Purlescence)

This is a DK version of Simple Ziggurat with added little extras and a slightly higher neckline.

Sammelsurium is a twist on the original Simple Ziggurat Sweater. Knitted in lofty, warm, and wondrously soft Little Grey Sheep Gotland DK this pullover quickly became a favourite to wear at home, going out, everywhere. With its contrasting lined hem, lined collar and cuffs, Sammelsurium has a higher neckline and finer finishing details than other Simple Ziggurats.

In addition, a travelling cable snakes its way down one sleeve. For a plainer look you can omit the travelling cable. Or knit it with a more subtly different yarn. Oh, and I added a small coin pocket as well, for there is always room for a pocket.
