For the first week, I will donate 20% of proceeds to Doctors without Borders which is on the frontlines in Ukraine providing medical care.

The Old Growth Sweater (the cowl that grew up), takes inspiration from tree rings in old-growth forests. This top-down pullover with 3/4 length sleeves begins with a hemmed textured collar and round-yoke shaping with an oversized, easy-to-wear silhouette.

250 (288, 308, 337, 348)359, 378, 400 yards of
DK weight yarn in Color A (contrast color)

528 (553, 614, 658, 684)710, 760, 808 yards of
DK weight yarn in Color B (main color)

I used two yarns held together for each color:
Meeker Street Flower Shop Fingering (100% SW Merino, 420 yds/4 oz) and Meeker Street Wagging Tails Pet Boutique (74% baby suri alpaca, 26% silk, 328 yds/50 g).
Sample used colorways Hold Up Beyonce for Color A and Midnight for Color B.

You may substitute two similar yarns or use a single dk weight yarn.
