This is the ultimate cosy ribbed sweater with a chunky cowl to keep you warm through the cooler months. The body of the sweater is worked in aran weight yarn, the perfect choice for a snug sweater and fast knitting. The cowl is worked in a bulky yarn; it would be ideal for using 100g of bulky handspun or that skein you had to have but now can’t decide what to do with. If you prefer your sweater without the cowl it can be finished with an i-cord edging for a wide boat neck.
