Perry Street Rugby


Sofie has been bugging me for an over-sized sweater that she can layer over jeans, and snuggle up in. When I showed her the pile of Cascade Eco Cloud that has been waiting for just the right project she agreed that it would be perfect for the sort of cozy sweater that she had in mind.

With it's chunky cable on a ground of garter stitch stripes, the Perry Street Rugby will be her go to sweater for heading off to class when the cold weather arrives this fall. She'll wear it over a t-shirt and jeans, adding layers and a scarf as the weather calls for them. This is the ideal sweater for football games, walks in the park on a chilly afternoon or enjoying a crisp fall day on campus.

The best part is that since it's an Aran weight and mostly garter stitch, this fun sweater knits up quickly, so there's still plenty of time to make one by the time the cooler weather truly sets in.
