With its modern, textured interpretation of the summer classic stripes, this minimalist sweater is the perfect companion to cuddle up with on long days and nights spent outside. Blacker Yarn‘s beautiful Lyonesse DK, a blend of wool and linen, makes for a lovely drape while providing just the right amount of warmth and cosiness.

Bonfire is knit from the top down, no seaming needed! Lots of stockinette stitch make it a very relaxing knit that‘ll turn into a wearable wardrobe staple once finished. Grab a couple of skeins in your favourite colour and treat yourself to a new favourite sweater!
