Product Details

Valley Yarns Cygnus is a simple yet striking women’s top-down pullover knit in Hampden, making the most of its silky drape and wonderful softness. The clean lines and simple shaping of this great layering piece fortify basic sweater knitting skills, making this a perfect sweater project for newer knitters to improve their skill in knitting in the round. Valley Yarns Hampden has a wonderful balance of warmth, drape, and sheen from its fiber content, making it fantastic for any DK weight project that needs to be cozy and soft enough to wear next to the skin. The seeded rib pattern is in written form only.

The pattern appears to be well written, clear instructions. My daughter wants it. I will knit it up after I look after my carpal tunnel.
