Milkweed Kit from Valley Yarns includes the PDF pattern download and all the Amherst yarn needed to knit this textured women’s pullover.
Every fall wardrobe needs a warm and stylish sweater for chilly mornings, and Milkweed is the perfect layering sweater for when the temperature drops. This pullover features a shirttail hem, subtle A-line shaping, a v-neck, and set-in pockets. Milkweed is worked in a simple twisted stitch pattern, and this seamed sweater is knit from the bottom up in pieces. Valley Yarns Amherst, a worsted weight Merino wool, has fantastic stitch definition for textured patterns. Note: The twisted stitch pattern is both written and charted.
