Feather light sweater


The featherweight sweater is, as the name suggests, a lightweight sweater that can be worn indoors. Usually, knitted garments in 3-strand wool are too warm to wear indoors, but because the sweater is knitted with larger needles than recommended for such yarns, the effect is airier and cooler. Sweater
construction gives a spacious feel.
The sweater is short and the fit is light and casual without being all the way up the armhole. A shirt or dress should be able to be worn comfortably under the garment. The sweater is knitted in the round and from the top down in one piece, which allows you to try on the garment during the knitting process and to make corrections for the desired fit.
