Caitlin Hunter HALU Sweater

From: $0.00

From Ravelry, Caitlin Hunter shares info on her new Halu sweater:

Halu is knit top down in the round and features a subtle front and back V-neck shaped neckline which transitions to circular lace yoke design. Short rows are worked after the yoke chart for a comfortable fit, and instructions are included for adjusting the body length as preferred. The sleeves feature lace at the cuff which can be omitted if preferred.

I used Cosy Posy Yarn Co. Posh (fingering weight) held together with Fluff (Suri alpaca/silk blend) for a fluffy, romantic version. Thank you for another fun collaboration, Antonella!!

Some testers chose to use a single strand of DK and that worked beautifully as well!

The wonderful Betsy Ioannou has compiled a list of alternative yarn options (thank you, Betsy!!) as Cosy Posy may be difficult to find depending on your location. Some of these were used by testers, some are just yarns we are familiar with and can recommend!

Pattern purchased separately; can be found on Ravelry here

Caitlin Hunter recommends these Sandnes Garn yarns; select your yarns below based on whether you want to knit with a single DK strand of yarn or fingering + mohair held together:

Sunday + Tynn Silk Mohair (fingering + lace option)

Double Sunday or Smart (DK options)
