The Design

“Snuggle up and set out.”

Curl up in Cara, a simple round-neck jumper with lovely raglan sleeves. This seriously cuddly sweater takes on contemporary style in a stitch-defining chunky wool. And it’s a simple and speedy knit—you’ll soon be snuggled up and setting out to face the chilly weather.

That’s especially true when it’s knit in Rowan Big Wool, a 100% merino fiber. It’s a woolly mammoth of a yarn, but don’t worry. The bulk belies an easy-to-work-with softy that knits up this simple stockinette stitch sweater super quick—the gauge is two and a half stitches to the inch!
