Basic Skills Necessary:

Pattern Description:

Thankful was inspired by the need for an easy to wear, yet flattering, quick knit sweater that could be tossed on whenever the chill strikes. An optional technique, called the "trick play," to work the body of the sweater without purling has been included. Though the sweater is worked flat; a circular needle is needed if you want to use the "trick play" technique.
