I grew up wearing a school uniform, which, for me, turns out to be a hard habit to kick. Some people seem to totally reject their childhoods of forced attire, opting for recklessly eclectic wardrobes. But I can’t fight it; I’m a uniform kid, through and through.

I am sure you’ll be relieved to read I am no longer sporting ill-fitting plaid jumpers, but there is rarely a day that goes by that I’m not in my own personal uniform. Lately, it’s been dark-wash Levi’s paired with some form of a baseball T or an athletic-gray sweatshirt. Naturally, I need handknit interpretations of these basics! I accomplished the first this past autumn when I stitched up the Everyday Linen Raglan. And now, I’m happy to add a thicker, cozier, woolier version to my collection… the Sweatshirt Sweater!

Sweatshirt Sweater | Purl Soho

The Sweatshirt Sweater is my new go-to garb, spacious enough for under-layers and soft enough to go without. It’s knit in Swans Island 100% organic merino, a beautiful light worsted yarn that evokes a natural refinement. I’ll be in this uniform for these last snowy days of March, all the way through the crisp nights of spring!

Spoiler alert: as the seasons change, so does my uniform, so keep your eye out for some more knit basics in the months to come! -Laura
