Ravelry dynamo designer Joji Locatelli's sweater patterns have been spectacularly successful, and The Easy One is another of her best.
To celebrate this speckled sweater design, we've put together kits using our Kettle-dyed Semi-solids for this cleverly sophisticated pullover.
From the designer: It is the perfect first sweater for those knitters who’ve always been afraid of making one. With its comfortable relaxed fit, you’ll be sure that it will fit you no matter what. Even if you don’t hit gauge perfectly…
The sweater itself is SO SIMPLE! a perfect square, no shaping for shoulders, no crazy short rows. Just hours of simple, relaxing knitting. However, it has been carefully studied to fit female bodies and proportions to flatter.
But this sweater is not only for beginner knitters. It is also perfect for the traveler knitter (I promise this project requires no brain power), for the experienced knitter who needs a break, for the fashion forward knitter and for the classic one…
I literally couldn’t find any situation that this sweater project wasn’t perfect for…
This kit is dyed to order in 4-6 weeks.
