It’s Sweater Weather – Top 5 Mary Maxim Sweaters

The crisp air leads to guilty pleasures.  There is something special that happens when you cozy up on a cool fall day with a cup of coffee or tea, a hand-knit sweater, and a good book.  Sometimes we knitters and crocheters may even feel a little guilty for enjoying the same cold weather that forces our loved ones to wear their handmade hats and gloves as they venture outdoors.  This week on our blog we are featuring: It’s Sweater Weather -Top 5 Mary Maxim Sweaters.



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.

Stylish and Comfy!  The Ribbed Ragg Serape is knit using our Starlette and Starlette Ragg yarns (Shown in Starlette Black, and Grey Ragg) using a 36″ circular needle, size 10.75 (7 mm), and 36″ circular needles 10.5 (6.50 mm).  The Ribbed Ragg Serape is an easy and fun knit where one size fits most and can be customized for fit preferences.

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.
