Pattern Description:

St. Kilda is my answer to surviving a lowered thermostat. My intention in designing this sweater was just that, to create the perfect sweater to keep me warm at home this winter.

Pear Tree's supersoft 10-ply is such a luxurious merino, that St. Kilda won't just be my cozy at-home sweater, I'll be wearing this one out-and-about. Bring on the cold weather!
