This light fluffy and cosy roll neck sweater is perfect for keeping you snug on cloudy days.
It’s deceptively warm for its light weight and is oversized to make it super comfy and huggable!
It has the fluffy look of mohair but because it’s worked with Aran yarn, it comes together much more quickly than if working with traditional lace weight mohair yarn.

The sweater is worked in simple stitches with a large ribbed roll neck and long cuffs you can roll back or leave long. The perfect transitional sweater for when the clouds cover the sun.

Skills Level - Easy
This is a simple pattern using half double crochet throughout, working in the back loops for the ribbing. You will create the body pieces flat and the sleeves in the round.
This would make a great first garment for the newer crocheter and a simple make for those with more experience.

Made using a 5mm hook and Drops Brushed Alpaca silk, the yarn has a lovely fluffy halo which makes it very lightweight but warm.
This sweater can also be made in any aran / worsted weight or even a heavier dk yarn which meets the gauge. More solid yarns will make a chunkier sweater.

The sweater is available in sizes XS-3X with suggestions to alter sleeve length. Approximate finished sizes and a schematic are given in the pattern.

Happy Hooking!
