Valley Yarns Hamlin takes a drop-shoulder silhouette and alternates gansey texture with a twisted stitch pattern. This chic take on a sampler sweater gets an instant style boost from luxurious Westfield yarn, a blend of Merino wool, yak, and silk that has a silky soft feel and gorgeous heathered colors. Westfield lends its stitch definition to your finished sweater, helping the textures pop and giving the twisted stitch pattern crisp, clear lines. Hamlin is knit in the round from the hem to the underarms, where the back and front are knit flat separately before being seamed together at the shoulders. Sleeve stitches are picked up around the armhole edge and worked in the round to the wrist, echoing the stitch patterns used on the body. Add Hamlin to your must-knit list for a cozy, stylish sweater that will add instant style to a wide range of outfits! Stitch patterns are both charted and written out.
