This is a wonderful knit whether you’re a first-time sweater-knitter or a seasoned pro. The basic top-down construction is easy to follow with a rhythm of increases that fans out like the rays of the sun and creates the only adornment around the yoke.

An unusual blend of cool 75% organically grown cotton and cozy 25% yak, our Morning yarn has a satisfying weight, a very soft feel, and an incredibly lovely hand. Good news for your sweater… it’s machine washable, too! Try it in this Dungarees Blue, or any of the sixteen colors of Morning, each as fresh as the new day’s light!
