The pattern will be out on Wednesday 09/05!

Tender is a boxy, loosely fitted dropped shoulder jumper (to be worn between 8 and 10 inches of positive ease for a relaxed look! ). I could see myself making so many more of these! And I’m sure that it will become a favourite in my wardrobe this Fall and Winter!

The pattern is worked bottom-up, starting with the chevron texture, then you switch to a more relaxing stockinette in the round before separating front and back. A couple of short rows are added on the neckline, and then you pick up stitches to knit the sleeves.

That yarn was a dream to knit with. It is both soft and sturdy, and has a wonderful stitch definition. I wore my sample quite a few times already, and there’s hardly any sign of wear at all! I’m quite blown away!
