Faro Sweater (Good Night, Day)

Faro Sweater (Good Night, Day)

Created by Canadian knitwear designer, Tara-Lynn Morrison of Good Night, Day


A minimalist and seamless hand knit piece that highlights the beautiful texture of our beloved Kullu hand-spun yak yarn. The Faro Sweater features a funnel neck, stockinette stitch throughout, and wide body. The sleeves and body length are adjustable, though the original pattern calls for three-quarters sleeves. And there's nothing like the drape of this pattern knit up in Kullu.

Level: Beginner-Intermediate

Sizing: The pictured sweater is a size s/m and was modified to measure 22 inches from the top of the funnel neck to the bottom of the body of the sweater when laid flat; the arms measure 16 inches from the underarm to the wrist and were knit full length instead of ¾ length; the body of the sweater measures 9.5 inches from the underarm to the bottom of the sweater; across the chest measures 20 inches.

According the pattern, the finished measurements should be the following:

  • Gauge of 9 stitches and 11 rows = 4 inches in stockinette on 19 US/15mm

  • Approx, across chest 20” ( 22.5’’ ) ( 25”)

s/m: calls for 7 skeins (to achieve the recommended 300 yds); the pictured sweater with longer sleeves is made using 8 skeins.

*The pictured sweater sized down needle sizes to achieve gauge and a stiffer funnel neck. However, every knitter’s tension and desired fabric density differ. For that reason, knitters can enjoy playing around with different needle sizes and modifications to achieve the desired fit.

  • The funnel neck was knit with a size US 8 needle
  • The body and arms were knit with a US 13 needle
  • The arms were cast off with a size US 4 needle to cinch the wrists
