Whisky, Neat is a cozy pullover featuring a delicate cable detail around the hem. Once the cable detail is complete, ribs extend upwards into the body, ending in a subtly staggered pattern on the yoke. Simple moments on this sweater are what stands out, and it was an amazingly relaxing knit!

I love the softness that the halo on Peace Fleece Worsted adds to this wear-everywhere piece. The yarn is a heathered mix of creams, but still a little rustic - and this subtle fuzz gives it a feminine feel. Color is Antarctic White.

And for those of you having a hard time tracking my yarn down, Green Mountain Spinnery’s Mountian Mohair in Edelweiss is a great sub - there are tons of colors of MM available, any of which would be perfect, but that’s their creamy white, and they have lots in stock!

Whisky, Neat is worked seamlessly from the bottom up, with raglan shaping and short rows to shape the yoke. There are many spots in the design where you can modify the fit, since I’ve gone with so much stockinette this time! Length, body circumference, yoke depth, neckline shaping, and sleeves are all easily adapted for your body. Notes are in the pattern on how and where to do so. Cable instructions are both charted and written out.

Details are below:

Sizes reflect circumference around body before yoke shaping, based on final blocked fabric. I suggest choosing the size that allows for between 4-6”/10-15.25cm of positive ease for fit shown.

Yardage per size
Peace Fleece is a heavy worsted weight yarn, and gauge is 16sts/24rounds per 4”. If substituting, keep this in mind.
