Two warm and stylish sweaters which are easy to knit and easy to wear and will keep you warm on your walks in the countryside or strolls through town. Created using King Cole Drifter Chunky
, a soft and cosy yarn which knits up quickly to produce a striped and Fair Isle appearance with an overall subtle marl. The illustration shows the Round Neck Sweater in Barcelona
and the V Neck Sweater in Dublin
, though they would both look equally good in other shades in the range – and there are plenty to choose from. The sweaters have raglan sleeves and are knitted in stocking stitch apart from a flattering rib effect either side of the body, which adds interest and texture to the design. Both have single rib bands at the waist, cuffs and neck. Instructions are to fit chest 36/38 –to 48/50” (91/97 to 122/127cm). To complete your sweaters you will need 5.0 and 6.0mm (US8 and US 10) knitting needles. You will also need stitch holders.
