Nimbus Sweater / V-Neck Oversize Sweater

My one of all time favourite sweaters was always fluffy and soft ones. An oversize sweater with loose arms.. Chic and Cozy in most elegant way! ‘Nimbus Sweater’, is the sweater that I designed with these features.

I inspired by gloomy rain clouds, Nimbus. With the mohair yarn and the shape of the sweater I capture the cloud effect. Watch out the big rain cloud coming! With beautiful smoky blue I interpret gloominess but in a good way. There are rain effects with cables around the body. With these cables I think I bring perfection to the Nimbus Sweater.

Back and Sleeves worked with only knit stitches. In the other hand, front also mostly worked with Knit stitches but I put some cable stitches around the neck. Body constructed with flat knitting, sleeves knitted in round with lots of increases and then seamed to the body.

The design is so simple and easy. It is a really enjoyable project!
