Sometimes you just need something cozy. Whether it’s for the added layers when going out, or maybe you want just an extra bit of warmth for that light fall day, the London Sweater is for you. This design features a new twist on cabling. The spaces between cables are anchored, so the holes are not as large and noticeable.
With thicker yarn, this sweater works up in no time flat, so it’s a perfect last minute gift! Be sure to grab the child version, as well, and you can make one for the whole family!
You will need a 6.5mm hook, and 800-1300 yards of #5 yarn. I used Red Heart Hygge, and the fuzziness came out beautifully! This is also hands down the coziest sweater I’ve ever made. They Hygge just can’t be beat for warmth!
I love cabled sweaters, but sometimes the cabling is just too much! For this sweater, I created a cable only on the yoke, for a simple braided look. It’s also a yoke top sweater, so there’s absolutely no seaming, which is always ideal for me.
This sweater is cozier than other cabled sweaters, because I’ve anchored the crossed stitches, avoiding unsightly holes between stitches. Also, if you’re new to cabling, I’ve given extensive picture instructions and clear and concise descriptions for the cabling rows, if this method is new to you! You will need a basic understanding of the usual crochet stitches, slip stitch, half double crochet, double crochet, and double treble crochet.
