Just like there’s comfort food, I believe there’s such a thing as comfort knits. These are the sweaters that wrap you up in their warm, soft, snugness and make you feel at home. They make you want a fireplace and a cup of cocoa. Those are comfort knits to me.

I wanted to design a sweater that replicated that feeling, but with some flattering shaping and interesting textures so one would actually feel comfortable wearing it out of the house as well as while sitting on your couch.

With a ridiculously simple-to-memorize stitch pattern, this sweater knits up in a hurry on size 11 needles.
