This is the sweater I reach for on crisp mornings as the fog rolls out and my mug warms my hands. I pull it over my head and stand barefoot on our dew-kissed deck and greet the morning. Every stitch wrapping me in comfort as I gratefully embrace another day. Morning Rituals is knit from the bottom up, adorned with beautiful cables, a high neck to keep you warm and pockets!

This sweater was a collaboration from coast to coast! From Portland, Oregon to Portland, Maine. Ritual Dyes took Woolfolk Flette to new depths by hand dyeing this stunning 100% Ultimate Merino Boucle and then sent it off to me to bring it to life in a new sweater! This yarn is full of texture, incredibly soft, and unlike any boucle you’ve ever tried before!

Main Fabric: US 6/4 mm – 32”/80 cm to 40”/100 cm circular and preferred needles for small circumference knitting (ML or DPNs), plus a spare for the 3-needle bind off.

Ribbing: US 5/3.75 mm - 16”/40 cm & 32”/80 cm to 40”/100 cm circular and preferred needles for small circumference knitting (ML or DPNs)

Sleeve: US 7/4.5 mm – preferred needles for small circumference knitting (ML or DPNs). if necessary to retain gauge.Most knitters tighten up gauge over small circumference, so I recommend going up a needle size to maintain the correct gauge.*

Stitch markers, row counter (recommended), scissors, waste yarn, spare needles or stitch holders.
