This is one of the perfect sweaters for the winter season. This model is designed by Evelyn Siatra.
Lokasti is designed with an all-over cabled pattern & hems in single ribbing. The loose, relaxed fit, crewneck, and modified drop shoulder shape keep this beguiling pullover feeling casual, cool and incredibly wearable. The tubular cast on provides more elasticity.

Love, love the pattern. I knit in the morning while I listen to a podcast. The pattern is easy to learn and the knitting goes fast.
My sweetie bought yarn as my Christmas present. I intend to use it for the Lokasti sweater. Christmas Eve will be spent winding wool. Casting on Christmas Day!!!
The yarn is beautiful. It is everything I was looking for and more. Biscotti kept me posted on when it would be ready. They are wonderful to work with. I will be back.
