The Nolita Sweater from We Are Knitters - The Perfect Cozy Knit Kit for Fall + Winter!

Happy Wednesday, all! So excited to share the latest personal project just completed today, the Nolita Sweater Knit Kit from We Are Knitters


The extra chunky & soft, 100% Peruvian wool used to create this sweater is one of the most beautiful yarns I've ever worked with, and comes in an amazing variety of color choices as well! 



I wanted to go with a neutral that would match with any & all outfits, so picked the "Natural" color pictured above, which is a creamy, off-white / ivory. Soooooo pretty, right?! Which color would YOU pick? ;-D


Along with chunky yarn, you also receive super chunky knitting needles in each DIY knit kit, which makes for a pretty quick turnaround time in which you can complete The Nolita Sweater



All in all, I would say that The Nolita Sweater is the perfect DIY for Fall + Winter! Fun + quick to complete, with a super soft, chunky, & cozy end result. ;-D 


Have I convinced you that you need to knit one of these incredibly soft, handmade cozies for yourself yet? Good! 


P.S. Oh! The entire site is currently 15% off! ;-D 


Happy knitting, Maker's! :-D
