Simple, casual, and comfortably oversized, Feya will be your go-to for the weekend. Wear it over a tee, flannel shirt, or your pajamas! The body is knit in one piece from the bottom up. The sleeves are knit in the round and at the armholes, the sleeves and the body are joined. The yoke is worked upward to the neck with raglan shaping at the shoulders. Stitches are picked up and knit for the button bands. The sweater was designed to be worn with 4-6 inches of ease. Finished chest measurements are 39 (43, 47, 51, 55, 59, 63)" with lengths at the back of 24.5 (25.25, 26.75, 26.75, 27.75, 28.75, 29.25)". This sweater can be hand washed and dried flat. Berroco rates this design by Amy Cristoffers as requiring an intermediate skill level.
Riasa uses Berroco's yarn Catena. It is a lofty chunky weight yarn spun from 94% extra fine Merino wool and 6% nylon. It is so light that even oversized sweaters won't weigh you down with this yarn and it is amazingly soft and warm!
