WE'RE IN LOVE WITH TOMOMI YOSHIMOTO'S FLORAL DESIGNS

Updated: Aug 25, 2023

Tomomi Yoshimoto has won the hearts of knitters worldwide with her lovely flower colorwork sweaters. She released her Drawing Sweater pattern on November 2022, and it was an instant hit. In February 2023, she released another floral sweater design called Alyssum. Both are worked from the top down in stranded knitting and should be worn oversized. Below, we compiled all the basic info you need to know to choose which one you will add to your project wishlist.

At first glance, you might think Drawing Sweater has a circular yoke. But if you look closely, you will notice that it has raglan sleeves. The design calls for sport-weight yarn and can be worked with 2 or 3 colors.


The pattern is available in only three sizes, with bust measurements of 41.3, 46.5, and 51.7”(105, 118, and 131.5 cm), probably due to the motif’s number of stitches and repeats. Considering it is supposed to be worn oversized, the measurements for this design don’t have to be exact, and you can control the amount of ease you want or need.


According to Ravelry, you'll need 1394 - 2116 yards (1275 - 1935 m) of sport-weight yarn. You can find bundles at mYak's online store with their fabulous Tibetan Cloud yarn, made of 100% Tibetan wool. The yarn is super soft, and the suggested color combos are lovely.

Alyssum is similar to the Drawing Sweater, but it has a circular yoke and a smaller flower motif. The sample was knit in a DK-weight yarn. We suggest mYak's Baby Yak Medium, which is available in 26 beautiful colors, so it won't be hard to find a color combo you'll love.


The pattern is available in 5 sizes, with a bust measurement range from 45.25 to 68.25" (120 to 173.5 cm).
