Brilliant red in summer, chokecherries darken to nearly black by harvest time, when their sweetness is at its peak. The lacy leaves and red color of Fiber Dreams' Chokecherry Days sweater evoke blissful days of summer, wiling away the time, waiting for the fruit to ripen to perfection before making autumn’s jams and syrups.

Basic stitches are set off with a parade of leaves all around. Sweater is knit in one piece from hem to armholes. Neckline is added after the shoulders have been seamed. Three-quarter length sleeves can be worked flat from the hem up, or in the round from the shoulder down—both options are included.
