The Fluffy Feather Sweater
When I posted this sweater on my blog I named the headline “ The softest sweater ever” and that softness is why this is still one of my absolute favorite designs. I combined two yarns to get that warm woollen sweater feeling and added some extra fluff with a thinner brushed alpaca yarn. The pattern is very simple with a feather motif around the yoke. The fit is quite loose which will make this the coziest knit your closet will ever see. I chose to use a lighter color closer to the face to give it a feeling of an upwards motion. The sweater is knitted on circular needles 7 mm in the round from down to up. Because of the chunky yarn combination this project is really fun and fast to knit! Enjoy!
