So... we are kind of obsessed with the STRATHCONA SWEATER. It's perfect in so many ways... a chunky knit that can be done quickly, all the gorgeous yarn options, it's knit in the round, looks great with high waisted pants, cute raglan sleeve details... the list goes on! You can tell we are bananas for it because we whipped up 3 versions for our shop. One is done in soft, hand-dyed superwash merino Rasta yarn, another is in sophisticated Hygge yarn that basically doesn't pill, and lastly we had to do a crazy color block version in Merino No. 5 to show how versatile this pattern is. Whatever your style, this sweater can be customized for you! The sleeves and body can be lengthened if you desire. This project makes a great first sweater. You will love wearing your Strathcona! Guaranteed!!
