One of the easiest sweaters to make, this is a classic with a twist! It is striped and textured, which produces a rich look; warm, a bit oversized and incredibly comfortable. You will enjoy it for years.
Here, it is shown in Noro’s Kureyon, which is one of the nicest yarns to work with. If you have knit with it, you know what I mean. If you haven’t, this is your chance. It is self-striping in colors that continue to amaze you while you knit. I have also used two shades of Farmhouse Yarn’s Andy’s Merino variegated yarn (www.purlsoho.com) and, if you prefer, you can use another self-striping yarn (there are many available now) or two different colors of variegated yarn.
SIZES: Women’s XS (S, M, L, 1XL, 2XL, 3L, 4XL) (shown in M) These equate to sizes 2-4 (6-8, 10-12, 14-16, 18-20, W44, W48, W50). This is an oversized sweater.
