Woolstock's Irma: Making this sweater is a uniquely enjoyable experience. But it is not because it’s a challenging design. This is solely due to the fun color play. Each row has its own color scheme. The pattern itself is super easy and suitable for beginner knitters. The model has sewn-on sleeves, and you can choose to knit Irma as a cardigan or a sweater.
