Casper keeps telling me off for constantly saying that I love all of these patterns, but I love this one so much that I'm genuinely making it, so eff off! Honestly I love both the jumper and the cardigan, but it's the jumper that I'm making. I don't know what it is about the Drifter Aran, but whoever is doing the designs is really creating a wardrobe full of staples here. I for one am a happy bunny. It doesn't say this in the pattern but I'm going to really recommend using stitch markers to delineate the stocking stitch and moss stitch portions. However, I haven't done that and I actually find it quite meditate to count the stitches. It's not an engrossed-TV knit, but it's definitely fun!
This has been written for Drifter Aran, which is a gorgeous self patterning mix of cotton, wool and acrylic. If you need some help using a different yarn, don't be afraid to ask! Most other arans will work, but just make sure you do a gauge swatch,
