If you are anything like me, when the cold strikes you just want to curl up in a cozy sweater that just hugs you. Makes you feel warm but also comfortable, relaxed…
This snuggly pullover uses texture to highlight the beauty in hand-dyed yarns, and features a lovely cable in the front that looks complex but is really easy to knit.
The curved hem in the back gives this sweater a modern look, and the ribbed sleeves make it really comfortable to wear without the extra bulk.
Choose your favorite cozy yarn and cast on right away!
