Just as the hearth makes a house feel like a home, the Hearth Sweater will surround your special girl with a fibery hug from you each time she wears it.
This v-neck cardigan features a hood, extra-long sleeves, and a double-knit belt that is easily detached from the sweater, leaving no “vestigial belt loops” because it is secured in the back with buttons.
This sweater is designed to fit with about an inch of positive ease, so girls can comfortably wear a shirt beneath the sweater, without giving up the “fitted look”.
The belt is the only part of this sweater that uses the double knitting technique, and it’s actually a great “Intro to Double Knitting” project, if you’ve never done it before. There is a video link in the pattern demonstrating the cast-on you’ll use, as well as a video link demonstrating how to actually work your double-knitted fabric.
Any “adventurous beginner” who is open to learning how to double knit can expect this project to be a success. Skills used include: knitting flat increases & decreases picking up stitches for hood, sleeves & button band using backward loop to cast on mid-row three-needle bind off Kitchener Stitch Double Knitting the belt Sewing on Buttons
