This pattern was originally published as the Tash Sweater, and was re-named in March 2019.

The Winter Verdure Sweater is a raglan pullover knit from the bottom up in one piece. It uses two colours of Great Ocean Road Woollen Mill’s Aran weight yarn La Bella, a buttery soft Alpaca and Merino blend that shines in the striped colourwork sections. This sweater is long and form-fitting with waist and bust shaping, and its amazing softness makes for the coziest of sweaters.

Difficulty: intermediate / advanced

Skills required: long tail cast on, increasing, decreasing, colour-
work, juggling simultaneous instructions, 3-needle bind off.
