It’s so true that stitches hold memories and in some project it feels more obvious than in others. This sweater is truly one of those projects for me: I started it at the end of Vogue Knitting Live in New York in January 2024. I kept working on this many months afterwards but yet it feels and looks all New York to me.

I love the beautiful cables and the full panels of seed stitch. It feels so stylish and it is lovely to wear. Serendipity Sweater is worked from the top down in one piece. The yoke has raglan shaping and short rows at the back of the neck for a perfect fit.
