Our Head in the Clouds Sweater is a lovely, easy knitting pattern that was inspired by hot air balloons – you might be able to tell by the sleeves!

It is a stunning oversized, slouchy jumper due to it being worked on large knitting needles which also makes it a super fast project! If you don’t want it too big we recommending sizing down.

The pattern includes sizes UK 6-28 and uses three colours the length is determined by you.

This is a perfect knitting pattern for beginners as it uses just the basic knitting techniques – although it does have the option of adding a round neckline if you’re an intermediate knitter and fancy it (for which you’ll use pick up and knit techniques)
