Detailed Description

Say goodbye to the Ugly Christmas Sweater trend and say hello to this beautiful cardigan that can take you from the office holiday party all the way through March. The wintry motifs of snowflakes and frosty pine trees of this Martin Storey design won't restrict you to any particular holiday!

The fronts, back, and sleeves are knit flat and then joined together. The button bands are knit and sewn in as you go, with instructions given for placing the buttons on either the right or left. The color work is done using the stranded method following large charts. Finished chest measurements for this unisex sweater are 38.75 (42.25, 46.5, 50.5, 54.5, 58, 62.25, 66.25)" with lengths of 26 (26.75, 27.5, 28.25, 29.25, 30, 30.75, 31.5)". It can be machine washed on gentle and dried flat.

Felted Tweed by Rowan is one of our favorite yarns. We love its casual tweedy look, its huge palette of colors, its softness and warmth, and the fact that it is machine washable. It is a DK weight yarn that is knit in this project at a gauge of 6.75 stitches per inch using stranded colorwork. This sweater uses only two of this yarn's beautiful colors, but the same design is available in a 6-color version. You can see it here.

The kit includes the pattern and yarn. You will also need:

  • single point or circular needles in US size 5 (OR SIZE NEEDED TO OBTAIN GAUGE)
  • single point or circular needles in US size 3
  • tapestry needle

Pine Forest is shown in main color 177 Clay with accent color 170 Seafarer.
