Cozy Sweater Pattern for the Chill in the Air

The weather is wintry, with frost on the grass and the cars every morning.  Coffee and cocoa are replacing iced tea and lemonade.  All the little drafts in the house are evident once again, and the coziest throw in the family room is always in use.  This sweater pattern is cozy and quick, and will make a great addition to your wardrobe or make a great gift.  (Note: pattern is listed in CENTIMETERS.  There is a link to INCHES)

Alpaca is the warmest fiber, and in bulky makes an outer layer like a jacket.  If you want a lighter layer, make it in worsted weight, or in wool or acrylic.  Any of our bulky weight varigated yarns will make this project sing. For a different look, make it in a solid.

Because it's knit on 8's it knits up pretty quickly. Its rated as EASY by the designer/manufacturer.  And if you need a hand, ask a Knit Doctor at Karma.  We'll be happy to give you hand!
