Amanda Hester Smith describes this as her favorite handmade item to date. Probably her favorite – after all, she does have quite the collection to choose from!

A River Wild was designed using Windy Hill Fiber merino sock in three colors: A River Wild (variegated) for the yoke, tonal beige for the body, and tonal light for the contrasting edging. This simply fun and elegant pullover is worked from the bottom up before joining the sleeves & torso to work the yoke. A gauge swatch is always recommended, but you could knit a sleeve as your swatch if you are impatient to start. This design is available for bust sizes 32-44 inches [82-112 cm] and includes a small amount of positive ease. Please reference the detailed measurements included in the pattern with the schematic to determine which size best matches your desired fit. I had so much fun drawing this schematic and believe this garment would be just as stunning as a monochromatic piece.
