Chunky Sweater

Added Dec 18, 2014

by Ellen Hatteland

Nedre Vats, Norway






After returning back to Norway I needed a great sweater to keep me warm! The wool-blend I’ve chosen is a bit heavy so I couldn’t make the sweater as in the pattern, but decided to go for a long neck as in the Funnel Neck Top I love this neck and the wool fabric I’ve used is rather soft and delicious to the skin. I have used double layer for the sleeves and hem – so now I’m prepared for a cold winter :)

Material Notes

Knitted wool blends and knitted soft wool
