We love everything about the Ursa sweater. Most of us in the shop have knit it at least once and we wear the heck out of them! Knit up in a luscious bulky merino yarn, this sweater literally flies off the needles.
Jacqueline Cieslak is know for her extensive size range, including instructions for adding bust darts and a custom bicep fit, in most of her patterns. The result is a sweater that fits you!
Ursa is knit seamlessly from the top down, using raglan construction and a half brioche stitch detail in the body and sleeves. Don't be intimidated by the word brioche. Half brioche is very easy to do and there is a video tutorial linked in the pattern.
Our yarn for the Ursa Bundles is Tod from Little Fox. Tod is a hand-dyed bulky weight non superwash merino yarn with lovely bounce and softness. Find our more about Tod.
