Lovely Aran sweater pattern designed for the men in your life but equally suitable for the ladies as well. This intermediate level sweater pattern includes instructions for sizes small, medium, large, x-large and xx-large.
Cheryl’s warm and rugged sweater is knitted with Cascade Yarns Ecological Wool but any bulky worsted weight yarn that yields a gauge of 19 stitches and 25.25 rows in a moss stitch per 4 inches should work well. Her recommended yarn has 478 yards per skein. You’ll need 3 skeins for a small sweater, 4 for a medium or large and 5 for x-large and xx-large.
You’ll need a 4mm 24 inch circular needle and a 4mm 16 inch circular needle or needle size needed to achieve gauge. You’ll also need a cable needle and a tapestry needle to complete the Scottish Ale sweater.
