While you might question this unusual looking yarn’s purpose, it is actually quite fascinating to knit with. Big Disk turns into waves of color as it is worked, and eventually displays the same wave effect no matter how many stitches you cast on. This is due to the length of the color sequence progressing from longer to shorter throughout the ball. Ease into this somewhat unpredictable color sequence with a shawl or cowl, or dive in by knitting a wooly sweater – you can’t go wrong with Big Disk!

Due to the long pattern repeats of this yarn, each ball of yarn of the same color number may look different from the outside.
Thus, we have photographed two balls of each color to provide a better feel of the entire color sequence.

Wool and silk are combined in this single ply yarn. Muted colors are formed by dying the wool and silk roving together, allowing for the natural differences at which wool and silk absorb dye.
Don't let the 'single ply' turn you off. Schoppel Wolle has a patented technique that just slightly felts the yarn, creating a single ply that resists the normal pilling associated with it, as well as enhances stitch definition.

Noten Sweater in ITO Rakuda



The sweater is worked seamlessly in rounds in one piece from the top-down. After the collar is worked, the colorwork-yoke is shaped by increases for body and sleeves and additional radial increases up to the sleeve separation. The sleeve stitches are then placed on hold, underarm stitches are cast on, and you continue to work the body with some side-pleats at chest height onwards to the bottom ribbing.
After the body is completed with color blocks, sleeve stitches are placed back on the needles to be worked top-down in the round.
