The Throwback Sweater
Since its launch a few months ago, I’ve been waiting for an amazing fair isle sweater to play with this yarn, and it’s finally here!! If you haven’t already seen it, Andrea Mowry has kicked out the perfect project for Dream State – the Throwback. It launched this week, and the pattern is one of the top trending on Ravelry right now.
This sweater was inspired by my childhood and weekends spent in northern Michigan on the sand dunes. It is my favorite cardigan for layering and keeping warm all Autumn and Winter long! This sweater is worked flat from the top down, seamlessly, except for the sleeves which are knit in the round.

This sweater is intended to be worn with approximately 5”/13 cm positive ease. There are notes in the pattern to help with picking the size best suited for you!
