The Velvety sweater is knitted out of our Feathery DK. Again the yarn was who whispered me something about creating a garment with texture. I’ve knitted a few pieces before on this base, and I’m always amazed by the airy texture of this yarn that lends itself to smooth and undulating lines and shapes.
Velvety is designed for a slouchy modern silhouette. The loose sleeves give it a casual look, while the extra thick collar adds a classic feel to the sweater.
The sweater is knitted in an easy yet beautiful texture that creates a fluffy and airy structure to the garment. Velvety is knitted bottom up and the sleeves are knitted by picking up the stitches from the body. This sweater is designed to be worn with 3.5” (9 cm) of positive ease at bust.
