Oksa Sweater Yarn Kit

The Oksa sweater is knit top down in the round and features a yoke design with slipped stitches, cables and simple knit and purl designs.

This sweater is Caitlin's updated take on a traditional fisherman’s gansey. The fit is easily customizable to suit your own style preferences. Please see the schematic for full fit details. Instructions are included in the pattern to make length adjustements. This size inclusive pattern is written to fit bust sizes from 28-66”.

For my version I used 100% Cotton DK. I am 5'10" tall and have a bust size of 40" / 101.5cms. I knitted the size 4 and 9.3 balls for my version.
