Pattern Description:

The fella had been pestering me to knit him a new sweater for a long time. I told him that if he wanted to design a sweater I would include it in my next collection and together we came up with Lochy.
Inspired by vintage cowichan cardigans, Lochy features the raglan sleeves, zip front and cozy rolled collar of a traditional cowichan but we gave Lochy a little Scottish flavour by adding tartan to the sleeves and a ram's skull to the back. The fella is delighted with his new sweater and wants to wear it now, even though the temperatures are too high for such a warm and cozy garment!
