Cascabel

Cascabel is a spicy seamless yoke sweater with little round chili peppers around it?s neck! Worked from the bottom up, the pattern starts with the sleeves to give you a chance to check gauge and get in the groove.  There is subtle waist shaping at the "princess" seams to allow for a fitted look.  You can certanly choose to skip this if you'd like the pattern to be less snug.  I chose a subtly solid color for the body and then a single skein of handpainted yarn for the colorwork.
