Eddy is a design built directly into CustomFit, which means that each Eddy pattern is written specifically to your choice of gauge and size.

Eddy is part of the Winter/Spring 2015 CustomFit Basics Collection.

Welcome to cozy town! The cowl is an utterly scrumptious silhouette, wrapping you up in the best knitting has to offer. Eddy features a rich cowl of 12โ€ (30.5 cm), a longer length, and long sleeves with luxuriously deep ribbing. Itโ€™s shown in relaxed fit, but looks great no matter what.

This sample was knit in Rowan Alpaca Chunky, a warm, soft bulky yarn. Its chainette construction makes the yarn incredibly light for its size, and envelops a lot of air, making it particularly warm and cozy. Itโ€™s pleasantly springy to knit with, and lovely to wear. I used the color โ€œWrenโ€, at a gauge of approximately 3 stitches per inch, and this 42โ€ณ (ish) sample used around 12 balls.

(One quick note on yardage in CustomFit patterns - the yardage requirements listed here are based on my preferred gauge for the recommended yarn. And while Iโ€™ve given approximate quantities for standard size sweaters, CustomFit will make your pattern in the size and gauge of your choice. Itโ€™s pretty tough to give yardage requirements for any possible combination! If youโ€™re not using the recommended yarn, and/or youโ€™re not a standard size, I recommend Hannah Fettigโ€™s amazing app, stashbot, to get a sense of your yardage requirements.)
