Equinoccio Sweater Project Kit

£0.00

Designed by Cecilia Ballesteros, who lives near to Madrid, the Equinoccio sweater is inspired by the nights of the Equinox when the change from winter to spring or from summer to autumn occurs and the nights and days last the same amount of time.

The Equinoccio Sweater is knitted from the bottom up on circular needles. Starting with a rib edge, the body is worked with cables in the front area, and continues until reaching the armholes, where the back and front are divided and are knitted separately. The sleeves are knitted on circular needles, picking up stitches at the opening and knitting to the desired length.

This pattern comes in 9 sizes, and you can read more detailed information on sizing below. The model in the photos is wearing size 4 in charcoal. Your kit will arrive in one of our recyclable cardboard boxes, with between 4 and 8 skeins of Bam-boozle yarn and the pattern.

Please read below for further information on sizing, materials, needles and gauge.
