Margila

This sweater is designed to fit a very wide range of sizes, as the boxy shape works very well with large amounts of positive ease to drape. The sweater is knit using a DK and fingering yarn in different colours held together to create a marled effect. You could even try a fingering weight yarn with a halo (such as mohair) to create a totally different effect!
