This pattern is available in English and German. Upon purchase you will receive two separate files, one in each language.

Frosty Acorn is a beautiful and wearable addition to your wardrobe. It’s worked seamlessly from top down and requires minimal finishing. The circular yoke is worked in reverse Stockinette and finished with a ribbing. Stitches for the body and sleeves are then picked up from the back of the ribbing to create an effect of a large cowl around the shoulders.
