Célia is a lofty sweater meant to be worn everyday. The simple, oversized fit and the softness of the yarn make it a perfect casual wear. Work with a top-down construction, the sleeves stitches are placed on scrap yarns, as the crew neck shaping and the raglan increases are finished. The body is then worked in the round. The asymmetrical bottom hem, which adds interesting details, is shaped with short rows. The sleeves are then worked in the round and the neck band is picked up. The sweater is shown in size M, worn with 2” positive ease.



Célia is the result of another collaboration between Falling Stitches and Skein. This yarn a wonderful blend of merino and cashmere is just a wonder to knit. Soft, squishy and lofty, Himalaya has everything. It's the coziest, warmest sweater, and yet it's light and a joy to wear. I'm never taking it off.



This design is named after my grandmother, Célia, who passed away while I was knitting the sweater. This one is for you, grandma.
