Shown here in the kettle-dyed Moonlight colorway (Cloudborn Highland Worsted), this relaxed, raglan design by Mercedes Tarasovich is an easy fit for all body types — not to mention it’s a great pick for folks who’ve never knit a sweater. And it’s completely seamless, for all of you who hate the “f word”… you know, finishing.
Best of all, the sister-hosts of Off Our Needles, Jodi and Tracie, are making Zadie the star of the show for their Sweet Summer Knit-Along! So even if you’ve never knit a sweater, it’s the perfect time to try. Don’t worry: You won’t be the only one sweater newbie in this Knit-Along — it’s Jodi’s first time too.
The new season of Off Our Needles starts today, and the show has four different Knit-Along episodes slotted for the season. By the time your sweater is finished, you’ll have tackled knitting in the round, short rows, cables and more — all with a little help from our favorite knitting duo and your fellow knit-alongers (or should that be knitters-along?).

Here’s what you’ll need to get started…
The Zadie Sweater Kit includes your pattern plus all the Cloudborn Highland Worsted Yarn you’ll need to follow along. Just take your pick of 37 available colorways! When you check out, you can use coupon code ZADIEKAL17 to get 50% off the full MSRP. (It’s our little way of celebrating.)
If you don’t have a set of circular needles, you’ll need those too. We’d recommend Clover’s Takumi Bamboo needles. The lightweight bamboo won’t strain your hands as much, which is a great for all those stitches.
