CLOSED: Cumulonimbus Sweater Testing Call

The Cumulonimbus Sweater is a continuation of my appreciation for cloud formations, the super fluffy yarn used in the pattern really is like a big fluffy cloud. The v neck is wide and deep giving plenty of space to show off your favourite fancy collared shirt. Worked top down in the round you can customise the length to suit, increase the positive ease for a more relaxed fit.
