Ruth strikes the balance between sophistication and comfort. It’s a straightforward Cocoknits Method pattern with an incorporated collar, but the magic happens when you cross the front collar stitches, transforming it into a streamlined shawl collar pullover. Side vents add to the ease and wearability of the sweater. Choose a scrumptious yarn and let Ruth envelop you like a hug!
