This pattern is available in English and in French as a digital download.

Wind Whistles is an airy and light brioche sweater, worked seamlessly from top to bottom using one strand of Pebble and one strand of Silk Cloud. Because it was designed using the contiguous sleeve method, it is easily adaptable to fit exactly your shape. The pattern includes two sets of 9 sizes (see note below), as well as indications for a cropped version.
