Cable Stitch Maxi Sweater
If you make one thing this season make it this essential tunic length sweater to layer over leggings, pants or maxi skirts. Knitted in ‘erika knight’ maxi wool, a super bulky pure British wool of the highest quality. An oversized braid and regular cable stitch patterns run up the front and contrast with the plain stocking/stockinette stitch back and sleeves. The cowl neck is worked in basic rib stitch. The simple bit is making it, the difficult bit is trying to decide what colour to make it in!
