When I lived in Alberta, my favorite place was nestled in the heart of the Canadian Rockies. Emerald Lake may have been just too far from home for a day trip, but it was the perfect daydream destination, no matter the season. Now that I'm in Ontario, Sandbanks Provincial Park has slipped into my list of local favorites. I feel about the woods and dunes much the way I loved Emerald Lake's mountains and crystaline water. And so, I wanted to design a new take on an old favorite sweater; at a lighter gauge more suited to autumn camping trips in southern Ontario than winter mornings on a frozen lake. Outlet River is knit from the bottom up in one piece, and features a flattering wide ribbed neckline that's easy to shrug on with your favorite pair of jeans and hiking boots. 1050[1200, 1380, 1500, 1700, 1840] yards heavy aran-weight yarn, shown in Plymouth Tweed (100% wool, 109 yards / 50g) BASIC SKILLS NECESSARY knit purl increase and decrease work simple cables GAUGE 15 sts and 22 rows to 4 inches using US 9 /5.5 mm needles in stockinette stitch after blocking SIZING / FINISHED MEASUREMENTS 34[38, 42, 46, 50, 54]" chest 25[26, 27, 27, 28, 28]" back length SUGGESTED YARN 1050 yards of Chunky weight
