The Crunchy Leaves Sweater was inspired by my absolute love for everything that makes Autumn so cosy and full of beautiful little details. From the first warm cup of tea/coffee/chocolate to the first cold day, long walks in crunchy leaves and its beautiful colours.
The sweater is made to be comfy, a bit oversized and to enjoy these little moments.
It’s worked from the top down, so you will start from the neck with a yoke, and you don’t have to sew any parts. The sleeves are worked for last from the stitches put on hold.
