Mayu is an easy to wear pullover that is perhaps best described as a stylish poncho with sleeves. The tweediness of the Fine Donegal and the soft halo of the Silk Cloud combine to create a beautiful fabric that is both slightly rustic and decidedly sophisticated. Cozy and chic!
Left back of sweater is knit first, stitches for right half are picked up from cast on edge. Front is knit separately. After sewing up the
sweater, the turtleneck is added by picking up stitches around the neck opening.
