Zen (or Comfort Food for the Body)
This is the ultimate comfort sweater! It is inviting enough that you will want to wrap yourself in while puttering around the house and polished enough to wear to work or on errands. I have made it in very light weight merino wool, which makes it fabulous to wear virtually any time, as well as in cashmere, which makes it as warm as a blanket. The final result is a cozy sweater sure to become one of your all time favorites.
