The Ghost Town Collection
This sweater is the first of 6 patterns designed for a collection created in collaboration with The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers. The rest of the Ghost Town collection will be released slowly over the next three months so please stay tuned. A huge thank you to Candice and her Farmer’s Daughter team for this super special collaboration! All photos were taken by Candice English.

Knit in a loose gauge, Oh Dang- a brushed suri alpaca from The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers, creates an amazing fabric that is as light as a feather and softer than a cloud. This is the most heavenly sweater to wear! I designed this sweater to highlight the special qualities of this unique yarn.

Worked seamlessly in the round from the top down, this sweater features a colorwork yoke and sleeve cuff.

The pattern is designed to be worn with 6-10” of positive ease and is sized to fit 28-66” bust circumferences.

Pre-order kits will be available from The Farmer’s Daughter Fibers, please check their website for more info!

Engle is designed to be worn with 6-10” 15.5-25.5 cm of positive ease at the bust. A full schematic is included to help you determine the best size for you to knit. You will also find a coloring page at the end of the pattern to try your own color combinations!

Make sure to swatch before beginning this pattern- meeting gauge is critical for knitting a sweater that fits as intended. Some testers found they needed to use a needle size as large as a US 9 to meet gauge, it all depends on your personal knitting style. It doesn’t matter what size needle you use, as long as your gauge is correct. :smile:
