This is the coziest every-day sweater!
Wool and Berries is so simple: it features a faux-button band on the shoulders and an easy to wear unisex shape.
I am still surprised how much I love a good simple basic sweater… There really is nothing I’ve come up with that can replace a sweater you simply want to live in.

This pattern was part of a collaboration with Woolberry Fiber Co: https://woolberryfiberco.com
