DESCRIPTION

Hygge Days are here! Get cozy with this quick knit worked in a kitten-soft and feather-light yarn.

Hygge Days is a raglan-sleeved sweater with a relaxed fit. This ordinary looking sweater hides a surprising detail: the back is worked entirely in a snowflake lace pattern. The rest of the sweater is in stockinette with ribbed hem, cuffs, and neckband.

The pattern is written with both metric and US terminology. Both written and charted instructions are provided for the lace pattern.
