This sweater was inspired by woodland walks in Somerset and Scotland. The photos were taken in a small village just outside my home town in Somerset, called East Woodlands. There are beautiful deciduous woods surrounding the cluster of houses and a church. It’s an idyllic setting, even on a rainy day!

Yarn
Rowan Felted Tweed (DK weight; 50% merino wool, 25% alpaca, 25% viscose; 175m 191yds per 50g ball)
Yarn A: Watery (152) 1 (1, 1, 1, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2, 2) x 50g balls
Yarn B: Amethyst (192) 1 x 50g ball all sizes
Yarn C: Pine (158) 5 (5, 6, 6, 6, 7, 7, 8, 8, 8) x 50g balls
Yarn D: Avocado (161) 1 x 50g ball all sizes
Yarn E: Celadon (184) 1 x 50g ball all sizes
Yarn quantities are approximate, and include a 10% allowance for swatching and small differences in tension.

Needles & Accessories
1 set 3mm (US 2.5) circular needles, various lengths to accommodate neck, hem and cuffs, or size needed to get correct tension in 1x1 rib
1 set 4.5mm (US 7) circular needles, various lengths to accommodate yoke increases, or size needed to get correct tension in st st
Waste yarn of similar thickness to your main yarn, preferably a smooth cotton
Stitch markers

Gauge
36 sts and 40 rows to 10cm (4in) over 1x1 rib, using smaller needles, after washing and blocking
20 sts and 28 rows to 10cm (4in) over st st, using larger needles, after washing and blocking
It is important that your 1x1 rib stitch-gauge is significantly more than your st st stitch-gauge, so that the transition from rib to st st works, and the fabric doesn’t pucker.
