This quick-to-knit sweater is a go-to for your casual wardrobe—airy, lightweight, and super comfy! Loose ribbing at the hem gives it a lived-in look, while its straight sides give it a relaxed silhouette. This cozy simplicity allows for some fun with your yarn choices—whether you strand several lace-weights together or pick one, pretty worsted-weight!
For this version of our Easy Relaxed Pullover, we picked a soft-and-fluffy classic—Rauma Alpakka Lin. With this worsted-weight yarn, the renowned Norwegian yarn makers have perfectly blended brushed baby alpaca, linen, and wool. The lofty strand—held singly throughout—creates a beautifully lightweight sweater—drapey and soft, with a lovely halo.
