This relaxed-fit sweater has a surprising soft twist: you knit it sideways so there's less sewing-up! Knit the sleeves and front, from ribbed cuff to cuff, in simple stocking stitch, adding a subtle stitch stripe half way, then do the same for the back Pick-up stitches to create the ribbed neckband and textured hem. Knitting Level: Intermediate
You will also need: 1 Pair of 4mm (UK8 – USA6) Knitting Needles and 1 Pair of 3¼mm (UK10 – USA3) Knitting Needles.

About This Yarn
A fine-spun yarn with cosy merino wool to suit smaller budgets. The name refers to the twist-on-twist technique which combines strength with softness. With its 10% pure warm merino wool with anti-pill acrylic, Hayfield Soft Twist knits will retain their good looks wear after wear. In a range of versatile shades for year-round colour in three complementary palettes: rich deep tones, classic brights and soft neutrals.
What's it like to work with?
The merino content gives this yarn a warm soft touch while the twist-on-twist style creates clean stitch definition for extra clarity as you work textured stitches.
What is it best for?
Ideal for both knit and crochet, Hayfield Soft Twist is especially good for womenswear because the anti-pill acrylic means that any bobbles naturally fall away, so your garments will look smarter for longer.
