Pattern Description:

Moonshiner is named for a traditional song that I love and just cannot get out of my head. The sample is shown in The Plucky Knitter Primo Worsted in the "Urban Iron" colorway, which reminds me of moonlight - a slate gray blue. It's a wonderful sweater for those days of fall when you take a brisk walk through trees with changing leaves and then curl up inside with some hot cocoa. Or, if like me, you've made the west your home, it's great to throw on for a night by the firepit, roasting s'mores and dreaming of those autumn leaves as you hum a traditional tune. The pattern is suitable for intermediate knitters, with basic knowledge of lace and cabling. Please see specific required skills on the pattern page. Instructions are both written and charted, and the pattern has been professionally tech edited.
