Meander is the sweater you have been waiting for!

Meander is my answer to the winter months, when I seem to be in and out of cars, stores, my chilly studio, meetings and yoga and I want a sweater that I can wear throughout! It is elegant, cozy, luxurious and practical all at the same time. And I chose to knit mine in the extraordinary Woolfolk TOV, which is as soft as cashmere and as sturdy as a workhorse merino.

Combining a wide shawl collar, all over cables, deep pockets and meticulous attention to finishing details, this sweater is almost as fun to knit as it is luxurious to wear. Tubular cast-ons and bind-offs are used for beautiful edges, deep pockets with set-in linings maintain smooth lines and the juxtaposition of the Twin Rib and Braided Cables mix to create a strong vertical line and meandering curves, creating a strong mix of graphic and textural elements.

If you are ready to knit yourself a stunning sweater that you will cherish for many years to come, meander is it!
