I made this sweater in about a week or a bit more. It's knitted with Rowan Big Wool in Forest (100% merino), in size S, on 8mm (US 11) and 12mm (US 17) needles. Took about 4.2 balls, the other 0.8 was used for the matching hat. The pattern is Rowan's Bigger Picture and i'm going to make another sweater from there. It's chunky and i like it!

Thank you! Big Wool is a great yarn, it's soft and squishy and warm! And it was on sale:teehee:

Thanks everyone :hug: I made it S on purpose, because i wanted it to fit tight with the bulky yarn and it's getting looser after a few times i wore it. It's warm and squishy and the yarn is really great!
