What patience I have in plying I make up for in disliking sewing pieces together. Alyn may be made of a 3-ply handspun yarn, but the grafting at the armholes is the only join there is, allowing for a sleek structure and minimal finishing. Only the front and sleeves are patterned, giving your brain a bit of a stockinette stitch rest between cables.
Oatmeal BFL (usually a natural tawny grey) is the perfect color to leave undyed for men’s garments, while the slightly mottled texture of handspun yarn gives the stockinette portions interest. A tight ply makes this sweater extremely warm and perfect for cozying up inside in winter, or for chilly treks into the village in the snow.
Please note that there are not currently errors in the charts. There was an error in one of the charts when the pattern first came out, but this was quickly corrected. If you printed the charts earlier on, please revisit the chart pages to make sure it is the correct version.
