Wrap yourself with pine boughs and flowering vines in this top-down circular yoke pullover. Knit up in a woolen-spun fingering yarn, this sweater is as light as a feather and as warm as a hug. Cast on provisionally, Enwreathed is finished off with deep ribbing at hem and cuffs, while the collar is simply bound off to form a delicate rollneck.

Note: As written the sleeves are slim. If you want larger sleeves, consider increasing stitches for each sleeve at the split.
