How To Knit An Easy Sweater
We have a quick and easy sweater for you this week.
Our casual sweater is worked in King Cole Riot Chunky, a beautiful wool and acrylic mix showcasing multi-tonal shades.
We chose Hazelnut (3080) featuring autumnal shades of yellows, browns, oranges and blues. It is one of twenty shades available.
The sweater instructions come in six sizes ranging from 76/81 cm (30/32 ins) to 127/132 cm (50/52 ins). Actual size is around 23/16 cm (8/6 ins) bigger. This gives a comfortable fit and will allow you to wear something underneath.
The front and back consist of reverse stocking stitch with vertical twists with the sleeves in stocking stitch. The drop shoulders mean there is very little shaping.
By popular request, there are pockets, and the twist pattern also features on them.
We have graded this an easy design and it should knit up quickly, too.
We hope you like our pretty and practical sweater, designed with you in mind.
