This one is a striking but simple sweater that’s just perfect for a foggy day at the beach or a cool summer night. Fog Cutter is versatile, flattering, and easy to throw on. It features a beautiful combination of cables, lace, and texture in a panel that undulates like waves over small stones. A split hem, some ribbed detail, and boldly seamed shoulders also add to the interest on this design, and reverse stockinette on sleeves and back keep the focus on the details.
Modeled high on the hip with 5” of positive ease for a nice, easy fit, but simple and easy to follow instructions are included to alter width or length.
O-wool Balance is a favorite summer yarn up north (or all year round in the south) - with a perfect 50/50 mix of organic cotton and organic merino. It shows off the pattern beautifully and has the perfect twist and drape for a polished but casual garment. Available in 8 sizes (please note that kit sizes with similar number of balls of yarn are combined).

DESIGNER RECOMMENDED YARN: O-Wash Worsted by O-Wool (100% Organic Washable Merino Wool; 100g/229yds): 6 (6, 7, 7, 8) Skeins. This yarn will not relax the way Balance will and may require more length on the sleeves and torso.

ALTERNATE YARN: Woolstok by Blue Sky FIbers (100% Fine Peruvian Highland Wool; 50g/123 yds): 11 (11, 12, 13, 14) Skeins. This lovely heathered yarn will look rather similar to Balance but will create a warmer sweater. This yarn will not relax the way Balance will and may require more length on the sleeves and torso. Please note that this wool is not quite as soft as merino wool. We will substitute the larger 150g skeins if available so that you have less ends to weave in.
