A great basic – I love this grey color, it’s warm and cozy, goes with everything, and a flattering fit. Plus, it knit up in just five days! The yarn is 100% yak and it feels really wonderful – like alpaca, but without so much drape and stretch.
Pattern: The Dog Walker
Yarn: The Plucky Knitter Yakkity Aran (100% yak) – 6 skeins (160 yds/ea) in color Peppercorn
Needles: US 10s and US 8s (for broken ribbing)
Size: 42″ (I was worried that this would be too big, but the pattern recommended 6-8″ of ease, and this would have given me about 4″ – I don’t actually think it gave me that much ease, so I’m glad I went with this size!)
