'Lucy' A Balloon Sleeved Sweater


This is a free pattern with purchase of the accompanying wool. Please only select 'buy now' if you have also added the relevant wool to your knitting basket.

'Lucy' is a cheeky, fashionable, fun and a rather lovely sweater.

Lucy is knitted using a strand of Rowan Kidsilk Haze and a strand of Sesia Nordica worked together. Do not be alarmed, once you have cast on the two stitches automatically 'stick' together as one stitch. This gives the most glorious appearance and feel to your sweater. Our sample is made using Kidsilk Haze Nectar and Nordica Antique Rose.

We have suggested some rather lovely yarn combinations:

Kidsilk Haze with Nordica

Cream with Cosmos Purity 

Nectar with Antique Rose

Hurricane with Artichoke

Steel with Scree

Pearl with Mushroom

Bark with Branches

Anthracite with Slate

A pair of 5 mm and 6 mm needles.

2 stitch holders

Sewing up needle.

Tension: Approximately 15 sts and 20 rows to 10 cm. If you are a loose knitter please use smaller needles, if a tight knitter then use a size larger.

*As we all knit to a slightly different tension, yarn amounts will vary slightly from one knitter to the next. It's always prudent to take extra yarn if you know you have a habit of running out

Lucy is a fitted sweater. If you prefer a more relaxed fit, please knit a bigger size.
