This aran sweater, part of the Liturgical Year Pattern Series, is meant to be the best of what might be called “ordinary.” To learn more about the inspiration behind this pattern, click here.

Don’t like hoods or zippers? Instructions are also included for a round collar and a button band. These have all been tested.

Choose the fit you want; it is shown with both 2” of negative ease“ and 4” of positive ease.

This sweater was specifically designed for a wool/alpaca blend, which relaxes more when blocked. If you are using a 100% wool, knit the next size up from what you otherwise would.

Yardage: 11(12/13/14/15/16) skeins of Kirby Woolpaca, 109 yards each. Take off 1 ball if you are not making the hood.

This pattern has been test knit 4 times and independently copy edited.
