What you need to know

Use any standard chunky yarn!

Wrapping yourself in this snug knit is like being given a warm woolly hug! The chunky pockets and sturdy buttons are attractive, timeless details and add a little extra touch of cosiness. This gorgeous garment will become your wardrobe staple throughout autumn and winter and looks fabulous when styled with a pretty dress, or jeans and a casual tee. We’ve shown it knitted up in two different yarns, one solid and one marbled, so choose the effect you prefer or opt for another chunky yarn of your choice!
