Autumn’s golden palette is an inspiration for me every year. The warm glow of the falling leaves, the delicious fall harvest, and chilly weather are all reminders that it is once again my favorite season: sweater season.
I made this sweater with apple picking in mind. And it would be great to wear strolling through our many country fairs or cuddling up in an easy chair with a mug of hot apple cider.

50% angora, 50% wool
Lush is a blend of wool and angora spun into a 4 ply worsted-weight yarn. The wool in the mix keeps the yarn stable and sturdy, while the angora part makes the yarn extremely soft and gives it a warm, cuddly feel. Knitting with Lush is a pleasureit has the hand of a luxury yarn but without the price. Lush comes in 24 colors that range from soft and subtle to rich and bold.
For the Seed Stitch instructions in this pattern, we've used the phrase "knit the purl sitches and purl the knit stitches as they face you." We find that this phrase is the best way to explain how to continue working Seed Stitch after the first row is establishedas sometimes stitches are increased or decreased, changing the beginning or ending points in the stitch pattern. In order to clarify what this phrase means, please take a look at this tutorial.
