Maria's Raven Sweater

 

Fly through the fall in this vampy sweater, exclusive to The Yarn Company by Maria Zverin! A surprisingly easy project despite its increasing sleeves and asymmetrical neckline; all the details are done in plain knitting. Maria’s pattern is a size 38, combining four balls of Tahki Stacy Charles’s laceweight Luna (71% super kid mohair, 20% silk, 9% Lurex metallic) with two balls of Filatura Di Crosa’s DK-weight Zara (100% extrafine merino wool). Glamorous Luna is luxurious, light and slightly glittery, while classic Zara ensures solid structure and a long-lasting garment. “Forevermore!” Gauge 4.5 stitches per inch on US #7 needles.
