A cosy, oversized sweater with a delicate lace yoke, the wildwoods Sweater was designed using our brand-new mohair wool blend, Nest. The sweater is knit top-down with minimal shaping. The design is very simple, which makes for a fast and easy project.

The Wildwoods Sweater is intended to be worn with 5 to 12” (12.7 to 30.5cm) of positive ease around the bust. If you prefer a sweater with less ease you can easily size down, just make sure you check the sweater measurments on pg 6 to ensure a perfect fit. The sweater has also been designed to sit at high hip so, if you wish to add length, make sure you have extra yarn!
