The crackling of crunchy leaves, a crackling fire...fall is my favorite time of year, and this design has very quickly become my go-to staple for this magical season. Crackle is a cozy stockinette yoke sweater with a bit of a swoncho feel, featuring a rolled collar and hem, oversized body, and simple cable detailing on the sleeve cuffs.
I am so excited to share this design with you, and even more excited because this is the first design featuring our new collection of hand-dyed yarns! Crackle features our Hearth base, which can be ordered here.
