A cosy, oversized sweater with a delicate lace yoke, the wildwoods Sweater was designed using our brand-new mohair wool blend, Nest. The sweater is knit top-down with minimal shaping. The design is very simple, which makes for a fast and easy project.

The Wildwoods Sweater is intended to be worn with 5 to 12” (12.7 to 30.5cm) of positive ease around the bust. If you prefer a sweater with less ease you can easily size down, just make sure you check the sweater measurments on pg 6 to ensure a perfect fit. The sweater has also been designed to sit at high hip so, if you wish to add length, make sure you have extra yarn!
We have used our DK weight Nest for this design, however you can substitute this yarn by using a skein of mohair silk lace held together with a fingering weight yarn. If you do substitute you will need 3 (3, 4, 4, 4, 4) skeins in both bases.
