Thermal by Laura Chau has been a pattern that I have adored for sometime. It’s just so wearable, comfy and warm looking. There is no doubt that this is a very popular pattern as 1016 thermals have been listed on Ravelry alone, and sure it helps that it’s free. I’ve been waiting for the right time to knit thermal, I needed to know that my skills in sweater knitting were good enough to take on something so fitted and I really do think I’ve had enough practise with sweaters and sizing to give it a go.

The pattern calls for fingering weight yarn, but I had some Donegal Tweed in mind in a heavier weight, so I’m rearranging the pattern a bit so I can knit a thicker version.

I’m just loving working with this yarn, if you can see in the photo it has tiny flecks of yellow and orange mixed in this beautiful soft blue, it’s knitting up like a dream and I’m really happy I chose this yarn for the project. I can’t wait to see how this ends up!
