Bohus Sweater Kit

Regular price $34.95

Inspired by the beautiful work of the women of the Bohus Knitting cooperative, the Bohus sweater by Carol Feller is the perfect easy-wearing pullover for chilly days.  It's designed to have a loose, comfy fit; you'll stand at your closet and reach for this one again and again.  This sweater is knitted in the round, from the bottom up, in one piece. At the yoke the colourwork is worked in the round, and the armhole openings are steeked once the body is complete. (Haven't steeked yet? Don't be afraid!)

The design for Bohus first appeared in issue 7 of Laine Magazine, and it caught our eye immediately.  We've put together some lovely kit options for you using a rustic, woolen-spun yarn from Briggs & Little Woolen Mills in New Brunswick, Canada. It's one of our favourite workhorse yarns: fantastic yardage, reliable quality, a good rustic hand, and an unbeatable price tag, too.

The pattern is *not* included in this kit; you can purchase Issue 7 of Laine Magazine here, or purchase the individual digital pattern here. The sample sweater shown here is the kit combination "Squamish."
