The Stay at Home Sweater is the quintessential open-front cardigan - a layering piece that’s easy to dress up or dress down. Simple stitches and luscious yarn make a comforting knit that will make it into your wardrobe’s frequent rotation. The colour way featured in this sweater is called Patience as well all stay at home and wait for lockdowns to ease.

We are pleased to offer the opportunity to knit a long with other knitters virtually. Join us on ZOOM for 4 one hour sessions where you can knit, chat and ask questions of the designer of this piece directly. Shaina may have a few hints along the way to make your knitting more enjoyable and easy!

For bust sizes 47” to 55” we have spun the yarn into 500g skeins we affectionately call “Queen Size” so you can knit from one large skein at a time. There will be minimal ends to weave in as a result!


Sweater is designed with 2” positive ease for a snugglier fit.
