Cotton Candy Knit Sweater - Downloadable Knitting Pattern
The KNIT SAFARI Cotton Candy Sweater is a fluffy, fun and cozy sweater, perfect for the cooler months. The slight cropped length and split hem add some trendy touches, while the cable and lattice work on the front make the project a fun knit to make! Pair this fluffy cable jumper with slim trousers for a glam evening look, or pair with jeans and trainers to keep things casual.
The Cotton Candy Jumper is a mohair lace sweater, knitted seamlessly from the bottom up after working the split hem. The sleeves are worked seamlessly in the round, and then sewed in place - you might like to try working them two-at-a-time to challenge yourself!
The Cotton Candy Sweater has relaxed fit with 2”/10cm of positive ease at the bust - you may wish to knit a smaller size for a closer fit.
The model is a UK size 10 and is wearing the Cotton Candy Sweater in size medium.
