New Pattern: Ifan

I love a cozy grandpa sweater, and Ifan is exactly that. Intended to be worn with 2-6in/5-15cm of positive ease, Ifan has extra long sleeves and cozy patch pockets. The textured moss stitch body gives way to deep ribbing and tailored stockinette set-in sleeves.

My "self-pitch" for this cardigan was "grandpa sweater meets women's college." I wanted something cozy and easy to wear with a few tailored details. I couldn't resist making the sleeves extra long - I love sweater paws! I hadn't worked with Malabrigo Twist before this sweater, and I'm absolutely in love. It is so bouncy and squishy and absolutely perfect for snuggling up in.

Ifan is available on Ravelry now, and is 20% off through Friday, April 13th. Check it out now!


  1. This is lovely. I admired it on instagram when you first posted about it, but it wasn't until one of your work bathroom pics that I realized just how much I need this sweater in my wardrobe. Just trying to nail down the yarn now. I go with a neutral, or do I go with something more colourful?!

    Thanks for the lovely design. I'm stoked to start knitting it!

  2. It looks beautiful and I love the colour - what a gorgeous rich purple!

  3. I love it, what a perfect cardigan- my favourite design of yours yet!!
