This pattern is available in English and in French as a digital download.

Nevermore is an intricate and addictive round-yoke colourwork sweater. It is worked seamlessly from the top down and German short rows are used to add length to the back of the sweater. As the yoke includes several rounds with more than two colours, it could be considered as an intermediate to advanced pattern.
