*** PATTERN LAUNCHES 22ND FEBRUARY ***

This cosy sweater is worked from the bottom up and is designed to be seamless. You work the body and the two sleeves first up to the armholes then join them to work the yoke.
The Walkies sweater features a set in pocket and thumb holes in the sleeve cuffs, so the cuffs can be worn as hand warmers on a chilly day or folded back to form a cuff.
The colourwork design is worked using the stranded technique.
The sweater has been designed to accompany the Walkies dog coat and accessory pattern.
