If you ever wanted to wear something and feel like you are floating on a cloud, well this sweater pattern and yarn combo is it. Veronika, designed by Julie Weisenberger of Cocoknits, is light and swingy and easy to throw-on - a sweater you'll find yourself reaching for again and again. The bottom curves of the sweater are created using short rows. The pattern is seamless and circular. Once you are done knitting, you cast-off, block, and wear!
This version of the pattern has been knit using A Verb for Keeping Warm's ultra-soft yarn, Floating. Made of alpaca, silk, and cashmere, you will enjoy knitting it as much as wearing it. Sample size is medium in colorway Quartz. If you would like another colorway, please see our full palette here.

When working with yarn dyed with indigo, it is common and natural for the blue dye to rub off on one’s hands while sewing. This is called crocking. Although the goods have been washed, it takes pressured contact to release the extra indigo dye. Your handwork is part of the indigo dyeing process. The blue dye can be removed with hot water and soap. From working closely with indigo dyed materials through the making process, typically, the excess dye has been removed, and the crocking will cease.
Please note the fiber content of the material you are working with, and follow the applicable instructions:
Cotton or linen - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
Superwash Wool - Machine washable on cool cycle with pH-neutral soap, though hand wash recommended. Lay flat to dry.
Wool and Wool blends - Handwash only in lukewarm water with pH-neutral soap. Lay flat to dry.
