Emerald Sweater

by Lisa Richardson

Skill Level

Designed as a companion piece to the Emerald Wrap, the same cable details are used at the cuffs and hemline to add a subtle sparkle to the finished edges. Kid Classic and DMC Diamant are held together to achieve this, and Kid Classic alone makes up the main body of the sweater in a simple stocking stitch. Featuring a gentle roll neck and drop-shoulder sleeves this is a casually elegant silhouette. Note: This pattern uses optional Diamant Thread. Should you choose to select this option please see project information for usage and view our accessories page for thread details.

An Aran-weight wool yarn, with a super-light feel, Kid Classic is as unique as it is popular, having been a favourite with Rowan knitters for many years. The beautiful blend of 70% lambswool, 22% kid mohair and 8% polyamide creates a lovely soft yarn, which is perfect for cosy winter knits. Available in a refined colour palette of rich tones, this is a true all-rounder, which is as perfect for cabling as it is for plain knitting.
