The colorwork looks complicated, but is achieved using slipped stitches, so you’re never using more than one color at a time. The cardigan is also steeked and there is a fantastic tutorial on the site. I know steeking is a little fright-inducing (it’s still something I’ve yet to tackle, but want to!), but this tutorial makes it very clear and helps take that fear out.
Valley Yarns Sheffield is a favorite around here. It’s warm and super cozy. It is a blend of merino, angora, and silk. The angora gives it just a hint of a halo and the merino is super soft.
