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.

This is such a simple sweater to make. I could easily make one in 5 to 7 evenings of knitting. Lucy Light is a super gift, even for a Kiwi family member. It's a light garment that will keep the chill off sunburnt shoulders on summer evenings but will also insulate those members of our family who may be in colder climates this Christmmas.

A light, but cosy trans seasonal sweater, made from luxurious silk and the softest kid mohair. So easy to knit, featuring generous and fashionable balloon sleeves. Choose either the cheeky cropped version or a more accommodating longer length.

This sweater is fairly fitted. If you want a more accommodating fit please knit the next size up.
