How about a quick-knit sweater that’s colorful and cozy?

  • A fuchsia sweater with a bright green colorwork yoke.

Constantly Cozy is my latest sweater design. And you will be “constantly cozy” in this sweater knit up in Fully Spun Yarn’s Postscript Aran. This sweater will take you from those chilly winter months into the cool nights of spring and summer. It will quickly become your favorite “sweater-that-is-like-your-favorite-sweatshirt,” yet it can still be easily dressed up to wear out and about… (whenever we are free to gather together again… sigh). It has become my favorite top to throw on over anything from pajama bottoms, to sweat pants to my favorite jeans. Brooke of Fully Spun has amazing colorways and there are a variety of options to choose from on her website.

DETAILS
The design is a top-down, long-sleeved, oversized pullover with gentle waist shaping. Fair isle patterning adorns the yoke and sleeves. Instructions for the Fair Isle patterns are both written and charted. Additional charts with no colors are included at the end of the pattern so that if you wish, you may color in the charts to match the yarn you’ve chosen. German short rows are used to shape the neckline after the fair isle yoke pattern is completed. This sweater is oversized and is designed to be worn with 4” to 8” of positive ease. The measurements shown are the finished measurements.
