It’s knitted without buttons, for a drapey look (fastened here with a chunky wooden pin), while the hood adds a yout hful yet practical touch. It’s a big project, but it’s knitted in Hayfield’s great-value Bonus Aranyarn, making it an inexpensive yet stylish way to keep warm! The wool-acrylic yarn comes in a huge range of classic muted shades and brighter hues.
