Oaxacan Rose is the sweater that got me out of my knitting rut this winter. I found this gorgeous Malabrigo Twist online, bought it on a whim, and knit it up in deep, satisfying texture. The finished sweater is a loose and comfy, wear-everywhere pullover that really allows the subtle color shifts in in the yarn to stand out.
Simple lines, basic construction and just a few details keep the knitting interesting and add a touch of polish to the design. It was exactly the push I needed to love my needles again, and now that it’s done, this is one of those sweaters I never want to take off.
Modifications for depth or width are simple and notes are included in the pattern on how and where to do so. Sample is shown without waist shaping, but notes on adding that are included as well.
Size based on circ. around bust for final, blocked garment. I suggest choosing the size that allows for about 4”/10cm of positive ease for fit as shown.
