About Purls of Wisdom Sweater

The Purls of Wisdom Sweater is a round yoke seamless pullover knit from the top-down. With just a bit of purl-stitch texture in the yoke, this sweater is ideal for a first sweater knitting project. The Fibre Co. Team designed the Purls of Wisdom Sweater to be extremely wearable with a beautifully minimalist aesthetic and well-considered details. A sweater this versatile has an infinite number of styling options: dress it up or dress it down, layer it up for a day out or wear it with your favourite pj bottoms…the choice is yours! This kit is for a solid shade version of the sweater in &Make DK yarn and can be knit in 9 sizes. Kits are also available in a colourblock version, as well as solid for &Make Aran, colourblock for &Make Aran and solid for &Make Super Bulky and colourblock for &Make Super Bulky yarns.

The Purls of Wisdom Sweater is worked in the round from the top down. You will begin by casting on the Yoke at the neck which starts with knit 2, purl 2 ribbing, and then work purled increase rounds between knit rounds. When the Yoke is finished, you will put the sleeve stitches on waste yarn or stitch holders, and then knit the body until the hem, which is worked with K2, P2 rib. When the body is finished, you will pick up the sleeve stitches and work them in the round to the cuff, finishing with more K2, P2 rib. Weave in the ends, block your sweater, and voila – your first sweater is ready to wear!

Introducing: &Make from The Fibre Co.

&Make is a range of yarn for stitchers at every stage of their crafting journey, made with 100% natural, sustainable fibres from renewable sources in a stunning full palette of cheerful brights and nuanced shades created by overdyeing a range of naturally light and dark coloured fibres. This new range of yarns launches with 3 clean, minimalist designs ideal for beginners in Super Bulky, Aran and DK-weight yarns.

With a choice of weights, you will find the perfect yarn for your crafting dreams: be it the plump, round stitches of our Super Bulky created with a single-ply of 100% Peruvian Highland wool for a high-quality, totally natural yarn at an affordable price which works up with satisfying speed and remarkably light weight, or our 2-ply Aran made with a blend of super soft alpaca and Peruvian Highland wool which provides a satisfyingly ‘sticky’ yarn fantastic for keeping stitches on needles for beginners, or our 2-ply DK, with fantastically crisp stitch definition for those beautiful textured stitch patterns with a blend of Peruvian Highland wool, super soft alpaca and a bit of linen to add lovely drape.

These accessible yarns are designed to bring joy to every stitch of your sweater, accessory, or homeware project.
