Free pattern Friday: Passion

Passion by Amanda Crawford first appeared in Rowan Knitting and Crochet Magazine 50 but has now been made available for free! This gorgeous chunky cropped sweater is worked all over in cables and finished with a dramatic ribbed turtle neck. The juxtaposition of the shorter sweater length and high collar gives the sweater a modern edge while the cabling lends a classic feel.  Designed with one of our favourite chunky yarns – Rowan Cocoon – on 7mm needles, this is one of those quick but highly effective projects that will look like it took you ages to knit.  We are now fully stocked with 22 colours of Cocoon (merino + mohair) but if you’d prefer something in a superwash yarn, this would also knit up beautifully in Cascade 128 (100% merino), albeit without the dreamy mohair halo (43 colours in stock).
