This design from Sublime Yarn has a unique combination of elements. It has a fun crossover closure, cozy shawl collar, cutaway front, and fun colorblock contrast. It is made in seven pieces, all worked flat, and then sewn together. Stitches are picked up and worked in garter stitch for the button bands. Finished chest measurements are 37.75 (41.75, 45.75, 49.75, 54, 57.5)" with lengths at the back of 23.75 (24.5, 26, 27.25, 28.25, 29.25)". This sweater can be hand washed and dried flat.
If you haven't tried Willow, you should! It is a lofty, loosely spun yarn that is 94% Merino wool and 6% nylon. Because it has so much volume, it knits at a bulky gauge without much weight and the air trapped within the yarn makes for a warm fabric. It comes in heathered colors with subtle flecks of contrast color. And did we mention how soft it is?
The kit includes the pattern and yarn. For this project you will also need:
- single point needles in US size 11 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
