I love Yarn Week – Sweater Weather

Last Updated on October 17, 2018 by Gwen Bautista

We can’t let I Love Yarn Week pass without featuring Mary Maxim Sweaters.  We are famous for our beautifully designed garments.  The Mary Maxim sweater has evolved from the Cowichan Style bulky knit sweater in the 1950’s and 1960’s to the modern and fashionable sweater kits that are available today.  Right now enjoy 25% off all sweater and Poncho Kits on www.marymaxim.com and on www.marymaxim.ca

Top 5 Mary Maxim Sweaters

1. Textured Serape (Knit)

The Textured Serape is an intermediate knit using a 32″ circular needle, size 9 (5.5mm).  The one below is shown knitted in Mary Maxim’s Aran Irish Tweed but the Textured Serape is also available in Mary Maxim Aran Irish Twist.  It’s easy to see why we enjoy designing with our Aran Irish yarns.  The textures in this medium weight knit are beautifully displayed in this simple classic cardigan.

3. Quick and Easy Jacket

The Quick and Easy Jacket is knit with our Marvelous Chunky Yarn (shown in Chocolate Mint) using size 10.5 (6.5 mm) needles, and 36″ circular needles size 15 (10 mm).  When we think of walking through the under forest or getting warm by the fire on a crisp day with a cup of cocoa, we think of doing so in this sweater.
