Sarah Sweater by Cocoknits // featuring AVFKW Horizon yarn

Sarah is a perfect in-between seasons jacket - just right for cool days in lieu of a coat. The half-fisherman rib is not quite as condensed as full fisherman rib, resulting in a lofty, slightly puffy fabric. Dramatic angled, drop-shoulders and oversized pockets make Sarah fun to knit and even more fun to wear!

14 sts and 33 rows / rnds in 4” / 10 cm square over Half Fisherman Rib (HFR) and US 6 / 4 mm needle.

NOTE: It is important that you knit and wet-block your swatch because the Half Fisherman Rib fabric can change drastically when blocked. You will knit to your blocked gauge, which may differ from your un-blocked gauge.

Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book:
This pattern uses a modified Cocoknits Method, with the shoulder join dropped to the back. The sleeves, however, are picked up and knitted down from the armhole opening rather than as a seamless yoke. Although this pattern features the signature Cocoknits English tailoring with the front/back join pushed to the back, Sarah does not require the Cocoknits Worksheet. The Cocoknits Sweater Workshop book is recommended but not required.

This kit includes:
+  9-13 skeins of A Verb for Keeping Warm yarn (see sizing info above)
