Soft as rippling clouds in the winter sky, Winter Ripples is the perfect ultra lightweight super-warm layering piece. The minimal finishing and large gauge make it practically fly off your needles for instant gratification knitting or last-minute gifts. The simplicity makes for great beginner or TV knitting, but the single-row striping and seed stitch edging adds enough interest to stave off boredom. This top works beautifully as a curve-cuddling undershirt, or wear it as an extra-warm shell or a vest. The tails in the front and back can tuck in securely to discourage waistline drafts.
For the in-between weather of fall and spring, all you need is Winter Ripples and a cardigan or light jacket to keep you warm all day. It’s excellent for travelling, because it packs down very small and light. Make it in a cheery color combination to brighten up your winter blues.
