Fonda is a cute little popover top featuring a fun bobble/twisted rib motif, very loosely inspired by Jane Fonda’s wardrobe in The Electric Horseman. I know that’s a bit of a dated reference, but I can never predict where inspiration will come from! Fonda’s cropped fit is very easy to adjust if you prefer a longer fit. The sweater uses a tubular cast on and bind off- you can find links to tutorials for those techniques, as well as my preferred bobble-making method included in the pattern.
This pattern features some fun techniques including a tubular cast on and bind off, twisted stitches, and my new favorite type of bobble. I have included links to tutorials for all the techniques used in the design, so no need to fear if you haven’t done these before. I’ve got you!

NOTE: on our baby yak colors, we only dye on the natural basis, no bleaching or decoloring. Each color will vary from season to season depending on the shade of the natural fibers, making it at times darker and at times lighter. This is the beauty of working with natural fibers and therefore the shade of the sample you see photographed here, might not always correspond to the shade we have in stock or at your local LYS.
