The Balloon Sweater by PetiteKnit

Updated: May 26

This sweater, with its classic shape, charming balloon sleeves, and mohair halo, is sure to become a wardrobe favorite!


This Balloon Sweater was knit using Magpie Fibers' Swanky Sock in Stagbunny and The Farmer's Daughter Fibers' Mighty Mo in Suspicious Minds. The base, Stagbunny, is a wonderfully versatile neutral with just the slightest hint of pink. The marl in this sweater comes purely from the blues, pinks, and purples peppered throughout my Mighty Mo. Knitting with two yarns held together allows for endless possibilities; I see another Balloon Sweater (or two) in my future.
